Placements – Finding a Student

Thank you for your interest in hosting a student intern through the Judicial Internship Program.  Dedicated judges and supervising attorneys are critical to the success of our program, and we hope that you will join us in this educational endeavor.

Each student pursues internship possibilities, secures an offer from a potential placement, and applies to the faculty instructor for approval of the proposed placement. The instructor contacts the proposed supervisor to discuss the program requirements and invite the supervisor to participate. In order for the placement to be approved, the student, supervising attorney, and director sign a written understanding.

We use Symplicity, an employment management system operated by our Career Services Office, to inform students about offices interested in hosting interns for academic credit.  After your posting has been submitted through Symplicity, we may also advertise the opportunity directly to student groups and classes with relevant interests.
