Law school Interns 2008

State's Attorney's Office Interns Summer 2008

An internship is an opportunity to glimpse the reality of your chosen vocation. This internship is not an "observe and absorb" situation; it is an opportunity to be on the front line as part of our District Court Screening Unit.

The Screening Unit intern plays a critical role in representing the State's Attorney's Office. The intern is a bridge between the citizens and the legal system, to educate the community to better understand the workings of the criminal justice system, and assist citizens to more effectively utilize the legal system to achieve justice.

In this capacity, the intern will be preparing cases which involve:

  1. interviewing victims, witnesses, police officers;
  2. gathering and reviewing evidence;
  3. writing a factual and chronologically correct narrative of the event;
  4. identifying legal issues
  5. researching case law for court; and
  6. actually making a recommendation to the Assistant State's Attorney on how the case should progress.

Many of our former interns have been hired for positions in prosecutor's offices across the country. In addition, many of our interns have attained judicial clerkships upon graduation from law school. And of course, there are many Assistant State's Attorney's right here in Montgomery County who are former interns from this program.

The office recruits students for 3 semesters per year: Fall, Spring and Summer.

Post Law School Graduate Fellowship Program

Montgomery County State's Attorney's Office offers one year fellowships, which afford post law school graduates an opportunity to research, write, receive mentoring, courtroom exposure, and experience the atmosphere of a prosecution office.
