Dear Certificate students:

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has a number of openings for school-year internships. You may also try and extern through the Externship Office with DEP, and get credit for it; however, it is too late to do that for Fall 2018, and you may be able to convert this into an externship with the help and consent of Professor Gertz. But the deadline for an OCI interview is two days away!

Florida Department of Environmental Protection
Recruiting For: Tallahassee, FL
Seeking: Law Clerk/Internship
Considering: 2Ls & 3Ls
Type(s) of law applicant may practice: Environmental (programs), Litigation (Civil & Administrative), Administrative (ch. 120), Contracts/Procurement, State Lands
Position Start Date: August 27, 2018
Deadline to apply: August 1, 2018

The Office of General Counsel provides legal counsel and represents the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The office focuses on Florida's environmental priorities, such as restoring America's Everglades; improving air quality; restoring and protecting the water quality in Florida's springs, lakes, rivers and coastal waters; conserving environmentally sensitive lands; and providing residents and visitors with varied recreational opportunities.

To expose interns to the practice of law from the perspective of a public-sector attorney, interns will be exposed to the Office of General Counsel's (OGC) diverse practice areas, such as administrative, appellate, environmental, land use, legislative, litigation, finance, and real estate law. Each intern will have an opportunity to explore our practice areas under the supervision of knowledgeable, experienced attorneys.

Each internship experience is unique, based primarily on OGC's needs, and the calendar of work that arises during a given semester.

Generally, interns should expect to enjoy many of the following opportunities:
1. Assignments that ensure an informative exposure to many of the Department's practice areas and attorneys. Often interns research and draft legal memoranda, prepare motions, assist with preparation for trials or administrative hearings, engage in developing administrative rules, observe depositions, assist in preparing rule packages, or assist in preparing the necessary legal documents for real property transactions;
2. Inside exposure to how the Department runs and operates, potentially including meeting with top officials from federal or state agencies;
3. Potentially attending arguments or trials in federal or state courts and hearings before the Division of Administrative Hearings; and
4. Social outings with the opportunity to interact with our lawyers on an informal basis.

To accomplish this, interns working in Tallahassee may spend one-half of their internship assisting the litigation sections and one-half of their internship assisting the program sections.

Interns are generally not permitted to work for another law office while completing their internship with the Department. This internship is unpaid.

Preference will be given to students with higher grade point averages, students who participate in a scholarly journal and students with relevant experience.
