Internships at the Circuit Court

NOTE: The 2021 -2022 School Year Internships have been filled and we are no longer accepting applications for the 2021 -2022 School Year

The Montgomery County Circuit Court offers unpaid internships for students of high school and college age, with opportunities available during the summer and/or the school year. Student Service Learning (SSL) hours can be earned, if applicable.

Internships require independent workers who communicate well, are organized, and can follow written and verbal instructions. Applicants must be committed to the internship, as well as show motivation, initiative, punctuality and reliability, and the ability to maintain professionalism. Interns work in conjunction with several offices and may be placed in offices throughout the court as needed. The internship program does not provide direct working relationships with judges, attorneys, or opportunities to assist in courtrooms.

If you are considering an internship for the summer, we are looking for applicants that are available for a commitment of six uninterrupted weeks from mid-June through August, with flexibility for camps, vacations, and other obligations. Applicants must be available three to five days per week, Monday through Friday, between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. A minimum of four hours per day is required.

If you are interested in applying for an internship during the school year, applicants will be required to work a minimum of three days a week for three hours each day.
