Internship at law office- Summer/Fall 2018
ASHLEY-NICOLE RUSSELL, P.A.
Atlantic Beach Greenville Raleigh
Student Internship Job Description
Our student interns are involved in all aspects of family law, completing job duties as assigned
under the supervision of the Office Manager. The job duties and responsibilities of our student
interns will include but not be limited to:
• Preparing and drafting motions, pleadings, judgments, statements, documents, and other
correspondence (e.g., debt and asset lists, witness affidavits, child support worksheets,
responsive pleadings, etc.)
• Performing legal research
• Maintaining case calendars and case files
• Scheduling appointments, court appearances, and mediation/deposition hearings
• Preparing and reviewing discovery packages, including disclosure statements, answers to
interrogatories, and production requests
Much of your day may be spent interacting with current and potential clients, therefore
maintaining effective communication is a major responsibility of our student interns. Because family law often involves emotionally charged issues such as child custody, child support and division of assets, our student interns must have excellent interpersonal communication skills and must be capable of handling individuals who may be anxious, upset, or distressed. We will expect you to also communicate well with other professionals within our office as well as those we have working relationships with outside our office.
Many of the cases in family law involve a financial component; therefore, our student interns
must often investigate the income, expenses, assets, and lifestyles of one or both parties. The discovery process includes asking questions and collecting, organizing, and delivery documents
necessary for the case.
Work Schedule Our student interns will have a Monday – Friday during our normal business hours, 8:30 am –
5:00 pm. The specifics of your schedule will be determined by our business needs.
