The District Attorney's Office is always eager to teach and mentor law and undergraduate students through externship opportunities. However, due to personnel limitations, the office can only accept student applications at the beginning of each semester. 

For students from the University of New Mexico School of Law, we are accepting resumes and applications through the On-Campus Interview (OCI) Process. Please make sure to submit an application through the Career Services Office. We will be conducting the OCIs on Wednesday, August 30, 2017.
