The 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office is seeking 1L and 2L applicants for Summer 2019 externships! The application deadline is January 25. Interviews will be held on campus the week of January 28th.
To apply, search for job #18474 in Symplicity.
As a Legal Intern in the District Attorney’s Office, you will conduct legal research and draft appellate briefs arising from driver’s license revocation proceedings and misdemeanor and felony criminal cases. Interns will also have opportunities to work with other prosecution units within the office and observe various court proceedings including trials. This internship is an excellent opportunity for extensive legal writing experience, and exposure to substantive legal issues that are not covered in law school. Work in the District Attorney’s Office provides students the opportunity to learn about criminal and civil procedure, evidence, Colorado criminal law, state and US constitutional law, and trial preparation and presentation in advance of when they would be utilizing those skills as student practitioners. The internship is 40 hours per week during the summer, and begins in the summer of 2019. It is open to students who, by the summer of 2019, will have completed their first year of law school.
Students who join us in the summer may continue as Legal Interns during the fall and/or spring semesters of their 2L year, with their hours adjusted to accommodate for their course work. After that, any Legal Intern who wishes to practice under the Student Practice Act would then be referred to our County Court Chiefs to be considered for the Student Practice Act Internship positions available in our Centennial and Castle Rock offices. Summer interns are not required to continue in the program, but may do so to become prepared and impressive candidates for student practice act positions after the 2L year, and ultimately, new Deputy District Attorneys.
INTERVIEWS FOR THIS POSITION WILL BE HELD ON CAMPUS ON THE WEEK OF JANUARY 28TH. APPLY BY JANUARY 25, 2019 FOR CONSIDERATION FOR AN ON CAMPUS INTERVIEW
