Transactional Internship Program

NYCHA's Law Department offers an unpaid summer transactional internship for law students that, depending on the law school, may be eligible for weekly federal work-study stipends, not funded by or through NYCHA.  Summer transactional interns have the unique opportunity to concentrate intensely in transactional work in a governmental setting.  Working in a very collegial and supportive work environment, transactional interns will be expected to manage their own matters and will have the opportunity to hone their drafting, research, communication and analytical skills. Typical assignments include  assisting with the Law Department's real estate practice and development work; handling matters involving the procurement, award and administration of contracts, and related dispute resolution; drafting and reviewing contracts and amendments in, among other areas, construction law and information technology; and assisting with the management of NYCHA's trademark portfolio.
