LAW STUDENT INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The York County District Attorney’s Office is accepting applications for its 2018 Summer Law Student Internship Program. The internship program is a ten-week program, which begins June 1, 2018 and ends August 7, 2018. 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 James Zamkotowicz, Internship Coordinator at (717) 771-9600 ext. 3081 and an application and pre-interview questionnaire will be forwarded to you. All applications are due no later than May 15 annually. Interviews for prospective candidates will be scheduled upon receipt of applications. Selected candidates will be notified of acceptance. Please forward all applications to James Zamkotowicz, York County District Attorney’s Office, York County Judicial Center, 45 N. George Street, York, PA 17401 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
COLLEGE STUDENT INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
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 3045.
PARALEGAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The York County District Attorney’s Office accepts applications for paralegal internships year round. The paralegal internship program is supervised by Michelle Baughman, Deputy Administrator of Office and Grant Management. Candidates must be enrolled in an accredited two-year paralegal studies degree or certificate program to be eligible.
The program is designed to impart a well-rounded understanding of the prosecutorial process and the paralegal’s role in a trial team structure. Interns work closely with paralegal and administrative staff, and are expected to learn core paralegal duties specific to the needs of this office. They also participate in court observation, discovery assembly, trial preparation and special projects as assigned.
If you wish to apply for a paralegal internship, please mail a cover letter and resume to Michelle Baughman at York County District Attorney’s Office, 45 N. George Street, York, PA 17401 or email to email@example.com.
