    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive attitudes need a lot more Morgenthau and a lot less Vance. This is a prosecutor's office. Get tougher.

    Former Employee - Legal Bound Summer Intern  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Legal Bound Summer Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at New York County District Attorney as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Many guest speakers from various departments and various roles, including judges, prosecutors, paralegals, law enforcement. Had the opportunity to sit in the courts and observe homicide and juvenile delinquent cases. The program also has a mock trial at the end, and we receive mentorship from a prosecutor. My mentor showed me and my partner examples of opening, questioning, and closing statements from real cases he had done, and helped us construct ours for the mock trial.

    Cons

    As a high school intern, you will usually be relegated clerical tasks like filing, copying, collating, etc. However, the people you meet and the in-depth look you get at the legal system more than makes up for that.
