With a legacy that spans nearly a century, Carter Conboy provides a solid foundation, deep bench, and a diversified practice in service to corporations, governments, professionals, individuals, and families from our offices in Albany and Saratoga Springs.

Our Firm enjoys a long-standing reputation as a leader in the Capital Region and Upstate New York, and we take the professional development of our lawyers seriously.

Whether you are a law clerk, an associate, an experienced attorney, or legal professional, Carter Conboy will afford you professionalism, civility, collegiality, the highest standards of ethical conduct, and access to mentorship from a wide-range of talent, from peers to retired federal and appellate judges to highly-skilled and regarded attorneys. 

Law Students

Carter Conboy has established relationships with many prominent law schools where we actively recruit for part-time spring and fall interns, as well as full-time summer positions.

In 2000, Carter Conboy became a founding member of the Albany Bar Association’s Diversity Internship Program.  The program was established to broaden the opportunities for minority law students at Albany Law School.  The program has since received awards from both the New York State Bar Association and American Bar Association. For further information on Diversity at Carter Conboy, please visit our Diversity page.

Our internship program has become an integral part of our associate recruiting process. It is designed to provide interns with an introduction to a variety of legal experiences including collaborating with our attorneys and clients, legal research and writing, and exposure to the legal system outside of our four walls. 

Our goal is to provide potential associate attorneys with a realistic view of our Firm and to provide our Firm with comprehensive and tangible insight into a candidate’s merit.

While we conduct in-office and on-campus interviews and participate in recruiting job fairs, we also strongly encourage interested and qualified law students to apply to Carter Conboy by emailing a cover letter, resume, transcript, writing sample, and references in PDF format to:
