The interns work in individual legislator’s offices and assist with their activities and work functions. Interns serve from the beginning of the session in January until one week after the adjournment of the legislative session (March). This year the internships will be remote. The Legislative Research Commission decided not to have in-person interns.  Any student applying for the program must be willing to commit for the entire time of the internship.
