Educational Objectives

This internship familiarizes students with the prosecutorial system and provides opportunities for the development of general and criminal prosecution litigation skills as interns participate in pretrial and post-trial hearings, witness interviews and preparation, misdemeanor trials, and juvenile court proceedings. Students are given a copy of the internship policies and procedures, containing the expectations and objectives for the internship, at the beginning of the semester. The supervising professor communicates this information to field-placement supervisors through face-to-face, telephone and email contacts.
