The Connecticut General Assembly Legislative Internship Program provides an educational opportunity outside the traditional academic setting, bringing on college students as legislative aids to acquaint them with both the formal and informal aspects of the legislative process. Interns do bill analysis and tracking, spot and in-depth research, drafting of news releases and speeches, liaison work, constituent casework, and more. Applications for Spring 2014 are due November 1.
