The City of Englewood is at the heart of the Denver Metropolitan area, located just south of Denver with a population of approximately 35,000 residents. Englewood is a tight-knit community with a small-city atmosphere and all the benefits associated with a larger metropolitan area. The City is served by light rail and bus transit systems linking the community to Downtown Denver and other locations, including Denver International Airport.
The City Attorney’s Office seeks candidates to be its 2022 2L Summer Intern. The City Attorney’s Office consists of three civil attorneys, a criminal prosecutor, and two administrative staff. The office provides legal services to elected/appointed officials, boards, departments, and City staff on a broad range of topics, including contracts, public safety, legislation drafting, community development, natural resources, employment, general litigation, and criminal prosecution.
The ideal candidate for Summer Intern is responsive and personable, and has a strong work ethic, good research and writing skills, and a desire to explore many different aspects of the law. This is not an internship solely spent in front of a computer: we anticipate the Summer Intern will gain both civil and criminal experience, spending time in the community, meeting with public officials and boards, prosecuting in Municipal Court, learning to draft legislation and present during public meetings, and assisting with various research projects that result in visible improvements to the community. The Summer Intern may learn any of the areas of law listed below, but will not practice in all of them.
Minimum 3.0 GPA required. Demonstrated commitment to extracurricular activities and/or community service preferred; Journal/Law Review experience preferred.
