Indianapolis, IN asked in Business Law, Civil Litigation and Criminal Law for Indiana

Q: I am undergrad at ivytech. I was curious on if I would be able to get a summer law internship this summer.

I will be transferring next year as a junior. I am currently studying criminal justice and want to go into criminal law. I will be taking a couple classes, but was hoping to possibly get an internship at a firm this next summer. If you guys are looking, I would be very interested at working at your firm paid or unpaid.

A: This is a legal question and answer forum and not a job seeking forum. You should reach out directly to the law firm where you are interested in obtaining an internship.

It would help you in your search if you were to put together a resume detailing your undergraduate legal coursework and the type of computer software likely to be used in a law firm in which you have proficiency (e.g. MS Word, WordPerfect, Excel, Powerpoint, Presentations, MyCase, Filevine, Litify, CasePacer, Lexis, Westlaw, ECF/PACER, etc.)

A: Right now in the fall, it could be early for law firms to post their 2024 internships. But you could check job boards and touch base with law firms, as well as many other resources out there. Good luck
