Intern Supervision

The City Attorney's Office is a full service office made up of three units:

  1. Departmental Services and Administration

  2. Litigation

  3. Prosecution

Each Unit can provide an intern with exposure to a variety of legal matters, issues and challenges under the supervision of an assigned attorney.  

Intern's Role

The role of the intern is to assist attorneys in research or drafting legal documents, such as a motion in a lawsuit.

The position offers the opportunity to observe attorneys in trials, depositions, or meetings. It also provides interns who are court-certified an opportunity to represent the City as the prosecutor in criminal matters. Such representation is done under the guidance of an experienced attorney.

Internships Are Unpaid

Internship opportunities with the City of Burbank are unpaid, however, students have completed externships in exchange for course credits.
