Internship information

The Court’s Internship Program provides opportunities for current college students, emerging graduates or recent college graduates to explore careers within the Court and at the same time provide meaningful, real world, on-the-job, professional work experiences that allow the intern to apply theoretical knowledge.


An internship is defined as a closely monitored, highly structured, strategic, well defined project related program that provides professional work experience outside of the classroom environment. An internship merges academic, personal development, and career exploration in one. Internships are typically part-time and last three to six months but can also last for several years. Although interns are typically learners/trainees, an internship will provide a balanced objective in which the court will have highly capable assistance for project related assignments. At the same time, an internship provides meaningful, professional work experiences to meet the interns learning goals and objectives.
