Investigative Intern (Summer)
The Criminal Law Internship Program (CLIP) provides a fast paced, hands-on Internship for current students and graduates. Investigative Interns spend at least 12 weeks at one of the most prestigious Public Defender offices in the nation. Our Interns don’t just sit in the office all day copying files. Partnered together, Interns work directly with Staff Attorneys and Investigative Specialists to complete various investigative tasks and zealously advocate for their clients.
Typical investigative tasks include: locating and interviewing witnesses, interviewing clients, taking detailed witness statements, performing extensive criminal background checks, serving subpoenas, testifying, photographing, measuring and diagramming crime scenes, preparing courtroom exhibits, writing reports regarding investigative activities, assisting with case development and generally assisting the assigned attorney(s) in and out of the courtroom.
Investigative Interns will be given some clerical duties, but the majority of their work is performed out in the community. Investigative Intern training is provided upon employment and throughout the duration of the internship. The first week of every session is mandatory for Intern Training.
