We are now accepting applications for Fall 2021 interns. Applications will be accepted now through Friday, September 17th, 2021. Interested applicants should submit a resume, cover letter and a writing sample to Natalie.Lesh@erie.gov. Interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis.

The Erie County District Attorney's Office Fall Intern Program is open to students who have completed at least 1 year of law school. The Fall Program is less formal than the Summer Intern Program and is dictated by your class schedule and our needs. All internships are unpaid.

Students will be assigned to a bureau in the office where they will assist with discovery, conduct research and writing, observe trials and hearings, and help ADAs prepare for trials and hearings.


The District Attorney’s Office is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applicants that reflect the diversity of our community. Because we are a community-oriented office, assistant district attorneys become actively involved in our crime prevention and community outreach programs.
