Davis Law Group is a busy personal injury law practice located in downtown Seattle.  Our internship program is designed to provide interested students with a hands-on experience in the legal industry.  Because today's students may be tomorrow's leaders, or desire is to provide these individuals with a meaningful and educational experience.  We have 2 or 3 internship positions each academic quarter. 

Accepting applications now for the Fall 2015 Quarter. 

Internship Description

This is NOT your average internship. Our interns are not sitting around chatting with the receptionist or fetching coffee for anyone (except themselves). Our interns work on personal injury tasks and support our legal staff of paralegals and legal assistants. We provide proper training and supervision so interns can work on actual cases. 

Interns get the opportunity to work on a wide-range of projects and tasks, including: ordering police reports, submitting public records requests, preparing correspondence, performing file management duties, researching cases and case law, submitting medical and employment records requests; filing pleadings, interacting with clients, reviewing law enforcement, medical and employment records, drafting documents; and, other administrative tasks that provide practical, hands-on experience. 

We expect you to treat this internship like a job, not a classroom, so there will be plenty of projects to keep you busy. Interns will gain invaluable experience in the real world. Outstanding interns may have the opportunity to be offered full-time work in our office after graduation or a strong letter of recommendation.
