Interested in a Judicial Internship? Apply Now!

If you want to intern for a federal or state appellate court judge in the fall, now is the time to apply.  In order to assist you, the CDO has launched the first session of its 2011 Fall Recruiting Program, entitled “2011 Fall Recruiting (Judicial Internships Session Only) Direct Contact, Externship”.  This session includes information for all federal and state appellate court judges in South Florida. This new session includes judicial internship opportunities exclusively.

Judicial internships are also considered “direct contact employers” and thus you will not submit your application materials through Symplicity.  Rather, your materials must be sent via mail to the judges.  While the session will “expire” in the system on August 31st, applications are being reviewed by the judges on a rolling basis and you are therefore encouraged to apply as soon as possible. 

To view the participating judges, log into Symplicity and select “OCI, Resume Referral, Direct Contact and Externship Program Schedules” from the top navigation bar.  From there, select the “2011 Fall Recruiting (Judicial Internships Session Only) Direct Contact, Externship” Session from the drop down menu. 

Some of the judges currently accepting applications are Third District Court of Appeal Judge Frank A. Shepherd, Judge Adalberto Jordan and Magistrate Judge Jonathan Goodman of the Southern District of Florida.

If you have any questions, please contact Amy Perez, Director of Judicial Clerkships.
