College Interns must apply between September 1 and December 1 of their junior year. If you are interested in applying for an internship, you should contact the career services counselor at your college. Your counselor may then contact this office on your behalf. Our college internship program is strictly for rising seniors. The position is unpaid. We encourage participants to seek credit if possible. Students work a minimum of 24 hours per week.
The internship runs from June 5, 2024 to August 21, 2024. Students must undergo a full background check to qualify.
Responsibilities vary according to assignment but generally interns participate in three core activities:
Participation: Interns will perform filing, light research, library organization, data entry and scanning and other computer related tasks. There are several trips during the summer including to the NJ State House and the 9/11 Museum and Memorial.
Observation: Interns are encouraged to attend court as often as possible. They are also included in appropriate meetings and interviews.
Interaction: Interns will speak to attorneys, police officers, victim/witness advocates and clerical staff to gain from their collective personal experiences. It may also be possible to have them speak with members of the defense bar, the Bergen County Sheriff’s Department and a Superior Court Judge. Additionally, interns will receive assistance with résumé writing and interviewing skills to assist them in seeking future employment.
