The Office of the Solicitor General's Summer Legal Internship Program for this year is once again open to third year and senior law students all over the country.

The internship program in Makati provides a structured two-month legal training to outstanding law students designed "to impart upon its participants a sense of patriotism and a deeper appreciation of public service”.
A brainchild of Associate Solicitor General Karl Miranda which started six years ago, the program exposes law students to various aspects of government lawyering such as pleading drafting, attendance of court hearings with OSG lawyers, and legal counseling.
Specific tasks of the OSG Interns include, among others, the review of cases, pleading drafting, attendance of court hearings, participation in lectures, seminars and workshops on various legal topics, and visits to courts and government offices. Interns will also have the chance to attend court hearings with OSG lawyers as well as attend lectures and seminars on various legal topics.
The bases for admission are excellent grades and leadership experience. Interested applicants may send a copy of their resume and evaluation of grades at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for submission will be on February 21, 2014
The program runs from April to May this year. You may visit OSG’s website at: http://www.osg.gov.ph for more details.
