History of the DOJ

Happy 228 birthday!

The Office of the Attorney General was established in 1789 as a one-person part time position.

The workforce

  • Over 113,00 employees divided into 41 subdivisions
  • Annual Budget of $27.1 billion also divided into those 41 subdivisions
  • My interest is in the Criminal Division

My involvement

As an intern in the Criminal Division I would:

  • Read over and highlight the important facets of each case
  • Inform the attorneys I work under about the facts
  • Overall, I would gain valuable experience in the field of Criminal Law

This will give me the opportunity to explore a different field of law than I already have experience in.

End Goal:

Become a successful lawyer and someday, maybe even a judge.
