Senate Majority Internships - Legal

Senate Majority Internships - Legal

Thursday, September 15, 2022

Applications are open for the Indiana Senate Republican internship program for the 2023 legislative session. One of these opportunities includes serving as a legal intern.

Legal interns grow their understanding of the legislative process and play an active role at the Senate by conducting research and working with senators and staff.

Some of the responsibilities of a legal intern include:

  • Conducting legal and policy research;
  • Drafting and filing Senate motions and resolutions;
  • Summarizing amendments and conference committee reports; and
  • Creating the daily legislative agenda.

Natalie Collins, a former legal intern, had this to say about her experience:

"As a law student, a goal of mine was to use my law degree and love for politics together. This internship allowed me to see how cohesive they are in the legislative process."

Interns earn an $800 biweekly stipend and benefit from scholarship and academic credit opportunities, professional development, community involvement and networking.

Qualified candidates can be of any major and must be at least a college sophomore. Recent college graduates, as well as graduate and law school students, are encouraged to apply. Positions are open to Indiana residents, as well as nonresidents who attend a college or university in Indiana.

Senate internships are full-time positions at the Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis that begin with a mandatory orientation in late December and conclude at the end of the legislative session in April 2023.

The deadline to apply is Oct. 31. To learn more about the different internship opportunities and to apply, visit
