Summer Internship Program

The Fifteenth Judicial Circuit's Summer Judicial Intern Program is run through the Office of General Counsel. Applications are made available on the circuit's home page in January/February of each calendar year. The 11 week internship program allows the law student to observe first-hand the workings of the judiciary and legal community while reinforcing the legal research and writing skills learned in law school. The interns work on criminal and civil appellate matters as well as other assignments in the areas of civil, criminal, juvenile and family law. The interns are given the opportunity to attend trials and hearings, tour the local governmental facilities and learn more about the programs offered in the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit. Applicants must have a minimum 3.0 GPA in both college and law school, and possess excellent research, writing and communication skills. While the internship is unpaid, it may qualify as an externship with course credit being available through the law school.
