Article concentrates on students' internships, which provide them with a possibility to apply theoretical knowledge in practice. The purpose of the paper is to analyze and evaluate the legal aspects of internship organized for Public Administration (PA) programme students and their practical application in Lithuania. The analysis of internship regulations in 5 universities, having PA Bachelor's programme, allows distinguishing a number of similarities and differ-rences. The analysis of legal acts, universities' internal regulations and students' internship regulations of several Lithuanian study programmes in Public Administration indicates the lack of unified students' internship system. The authors provide several ideas how this topic can be elaborated in the future.
