The Executive Council of the City, County and Local Government Law Section of The Florida Bar will provide grants to local government attorney’s offices in the State of Florida to fund paid college student or law student internships during the summer of 2017.   The funds will be awarded to those offices that best demonstrate that the student will be afforded an opportunity to gain insight into the practice of local government law.  Grant amounts depend on number of applications received.

Local government offices eligible to apply are limited to attorney’s offices of counties, cities, school boards and special taxing districts.  Attorneys and/or law firms representing these entities as outside counsel are not eligible to apply.  The student must be a full or part-time college or law school student.
