Fall 2009 Judicial Internship Program

The Judicial Intern Program of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court (Miami, FL) places second and third year University of Miami School of Law students in a direct working relationship with county and circuit judges in the Civil, Criminal, Juvenile, Family and Domestic Violence Divisions.

The schedule by which the law student will intern will be a matter to be determined between the student and judge.  However, a minimum of 5-10 hours per week is required.  Interns are not permitted to work with any law firm or other legal agency while participating in this program.  The Career Development Office is responsible for matching students and judges.  To every extent possible, the assignment will be based on students’ expressed areas of interest.

To participate in the program, students must submit an application, resume and short writing sample.  Applications are available in the CDO (Room A-112) or from your CDO advisor.   Also, students must attend a mandatory orientation, during which time you learn of the judge you matched with.

Application Deadline:      Friday, September 4, 2009, 5:00 p.m.
