Law Clerk Program

History of the Law Clerk Program

Illinois Attorney General's Office invites and encourages law students to apply to serve as volunteer law clerks in the office. The Illinois Attorney General's Office provides excellent opportunities for law students to improve their skills and knowledge in a wide range of subject areas, including consumer protection, government representation, civil rights, environmental enforcement, antitrust, complex civil litigation, civil and criminal appeals, and criminal law enforcement. For more information regarding the various divisions and bureaus within the Office, you may review our programs and services brochure (PDF).

Working closely with attorneys in the Chicago, Springfield, or regional office, law clerks investigate facts, review documents, research legal issues, and draft legal memoranda, correspondence, and pleadings. Advanced students who qualify for a 711 license are encouraged to obtain such a license so that they may appear in court under the supervision of an Assistant Attorney General.
