Dear Ms. Xyz,
I would like to apply for a position in your office as a legal intern. Working for your office would be an invaluable opportunity for me to find out about the law in an applied setting.
For the past few years I have been a student at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey. I will be graduating in May with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. While at Fairleigh Dickinson I have developed critical reading, research, and analytic skills that I believe would be of great service to your organization. My enclosed resume provides more details about my background and qualifications.
I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your organization and discuss my suitability for working in your office. I will follow up this letter with a phone call to your office, but if you would like to reach me before then, please call at (973) 123-4567 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Fon E. Person
