Internship Description: The investigative responsibilities of interns include the locating and interviewing of witnesses (not an easy prospect given that witnesses are often very difficult to find and are not obligated to speak with investigators or lawyers), taking statements from prosecution witnesses, and writing investigative memoranda summarizing investigative results. Interns also conduct comprehensive criminal background checks. Each fall, spring, and summer semester, the Investigative Internship Program has 8 positions available. All undergraduate students, recent graduates and graduate students are eligible.
