JOB INFORMATION

Attorneys

The Attorney General's Office has a number of opportunities available for practicing attorneys and law students to provide valuable contributions to the legal profession.

On a daily basis, our attorneys confront some of the most interesting and important questions facing the legal community and the citizens of the state of Missouri.

From protecting our most vulnerable citizens from fraudulent scams to prosecuting Medicaid fraud to pursuing those who harm our natural resources to standing up for the disabled to defending against capital appeals, the Attorney General's Office stands firm in fighting for justice.

But just as important as the type of work we do, is the way in which we do it - with respect for the legal process, the public, and one another. The Attorney General's Office prides itself on providing a professional work environment that offers challenge and opportunity to all its employees.

Law Students 

The Attorney General's Office seeks the best and brightest law students committed to public service. To that end, we encourage applicants from throughout the United States to apply for a summer or semester externship, or permanent employment as an Assistant Attorney General. Because of current budget constraints, we are unable to offer paid internships at this time. Some schools, however, do offer stipends or school credit to students in an externship program.

Our Assistant Attorneys General hail from law schools throughout the nation, not just Missouri. Our attorneys consistently are well ranked in their classes and often have a considerable amount of professional experience outside the legal field that adds value to their public service.

We have on staff former associates and partners at law firms large and small, as well as career public servants. The diversity and the wealth of knowledge possessed by the attorneys working here rivals what may be found in most legal environments. When coupled with our commitment to ensure that this knowledge is shared through on-the-job training and mentoring opportunities, the resources available to our newest attorneys ensure that they can be potent practitioners of the law.

Indeed, many attorneys choose to make their legal careers at the Attorney General's Office. While we particularly value that commitment, it is important to note that current alumni from our office include Congressmen, Senators, a former U.S. Attorney General, partners at large law firms, corporate counsel, state legislators, and judges at all levels of the judiciary, including the United States Supreme Court.

Support Staff

The Attorney General's Office has a number of opportunities available for administrative and legal support staff.

Undergraduate Internships

Throughout the year the Attorney General's Office occasionally has unpaid internships for outstanding college students seeking school credit. We encourage you to contact your school to ensure that work with our office qualifies under the requirements of your program before applying.
