Legal Intern Duties

Legal Interns act as research assistants to the Director and Legal Coordinator. Law clerks conduct research and write memoranda on natural resource, ocean and coastal law issues. The legal interns at the SGLPP also have the opportunity to write for professional publication. Publication opportunities can be articles for the SGLPP’s Louisiana Coastal Law newsletter or in a law review. Law review articles can focus on topics tailored to the law clerk’s interest, though it also must be relevant to the SGLPP’s mission and focus on a natural resource, ocean or coastal law issue. SGLPP law clerks are encouraged to follow in this endeavor should they express an interest in obtaining publication credits.

Additional information can be found in our Legal Intern & Extern – Frequently Asked Questions document. If you are interested in applying for the legal intern or extern program, please contact Melissa Daigle at mtrosc2@tigers.lsu.edu or (225) 578-9968.
