I'm not too sure what the law is like in those states, but in CA unpaid internships are only legal if the intern receives class credits in lieu of payment. That effectively eliminates high school students entirely. And are you old enough to take a paying job in any of those states? I remember I needed a work permit from school to have a job before I turned 16.
If you don't mind me asking, why on Earth are you looking for a law internship right now? That's the kind of thing an undergrad or post-bac goes for so that they look good for law school. Hell, if you stick with any old job for a year while you're in high school that'll look amazing on a college application haha.
