The York County District Attorney's Office is accepting applications for its 2017 Summer Law Student Internship Program. The internship program is a ten-week program, which begins June 1, 2017 and ends August 7, 2017. Unfortunately, we are unable to pay our interns. All applicants must have completed one full year of law school. Due to limited space, we have only six internships available.

We have designed our program to allow interns to gain an excellent understanding of what it takes to be a prosecutor from the time a defendant is charged with a crime to the time of trial. This includes assisting prosecutors at preliminary hearings and during criminal jury trials. Specifically, interns will work with prosecutors in the office on research projects for cases currently being prosecuted, and if certified, interns will be able to gain first hand experience by conducting actual court hearings. Interns will also have an opportunity to write briefs for appeals pending before the Pennsylvania Superior Court, and if possible, attend oral argument.

If you wish to apply for an internship, please contact Jane Jacobs, Internship Coordinator at (717) 771-9209 and an application and pre-interview questionnaire will be forwarded to you. All applications are due no later than May 15, 2015. Interviews for perspective candidates will be scheduled upon receipt of applications. Selected candidates will be notified of acceptance. Please forward all applications to Jane Jacobs, York County District Attorney's Office, York County Judicial Center, 45 N. George Street, York, PA 17401 or email to jejacobs@yorkcountypa.gov.


The York County District Attorney’s Office accepts applications for college internships year round. The college internship program is supervised by Faith Uhler-Myers, Victim/Witness Administrator for the District Attorney’s Office. Interns are not paid, but may, in coordination with their college, receive course credit. Due to limited space, we only have four internships available per semester.

The College internship program is designed to allow students to work closely with victim/ witness coordinators while at the same time giving students an opportunity to observe the functioning of a prosecutor’s office and the court system.

If you wish to apply, please contact Faith Uhler-Myers (717) 771-9600 ext 327.
