Brooklyn DA -- ADA and Summer Interns

The Brooklyn District Attorneys office is hiring for both ADAs and Summer Interns. Please send your resume and unofficial transcripts to vicechair@nllsa.org with an explanation of which position you are applying for. 

Assistant District Attorney (ADA)

 

The Kings County (Brooklyn) District Attorney’s Office serves the more than 2.5 million people of Brooklyn, and is one of the largest prosecutor’s offices in the country.  With the arrival of Ken Thompson as district attorney in January of 2014, the office has become an incubator of innovative prosecutorial approaches — making this an especially exciting time to join the office.

 

The sheer size and diversity of Brooklyn provides a professional experience that is unique among district attorney’s offices around the country.  You will be exposed to full range of cases, including some of the most complex and cutting edge, and you will learn from some of the most respected and renowned attorneys in the public sector.  You will be given as much responsibility as you can handle.

 

Our goal is to hire the best and most committed public servants.  Our ADAs come from a wide range of backgrounds and we are committed to hiring and retaining lawyers who represent and add to this vibrant diversity.

 

Summer Legal Internship

 

The Brooklyn District Attorney's office is currently accepting applications for our highly competitive summer internship program which prepares rising 2L & 3L law students to perform the tasks and to shoulder the responsibilities of a first-year prosecutor and beyond.

 

The summer legal internship is a 10-week program, and interns are required to work 35 hours per week. Our hands-on training program includes: a full day of orientation, a mock suppression hearing exercise, a classroom lecture series, and tours such as the New York Police Department Firearms Lab and Red Hook Community Justice Center.

 

High performing legal summer interns are a primary source for hiring full-time ADAs once they have graduated.
