Internships

Can you do a law-related internship while attending CSB/SJU?      Yes!

Richard Podvin is just one example. -  Where was your internship?

My internship this summer was at the Anoka County Attorney's Office in the Victim/Witness Program.

What types of tasks did you do?

    -Shadowed Victim/Witness Staff members and Assistant County Attorneys (prosecutors) at various court proceedings (First appearances, Jury Trials, Sentencings).

    -Drafted Complaint Denied Letters for victims of crime for which our Office has declined to pursue charges.

    -On a daily basis, called and communicated with Victims on Court Proceeding updates.

    -Sat in on Jury Trial prep meetings with Victim/Witness staff member, Assistant County Attorney and Witness.

How did it relate to your POLS major?

    -Due to my Pre-Law focus within the POLS major, I gained a firsthand experience of what a future career in Law may look like. Being a POLS major has made me an effective communicator both verbally and writing. The skills I have obtained through the major in the past few years well-prepared me for my experience this past summer.

How did having an internship clarify your goals for the future?

    -This internship was unbelievably helpful for me in discerning my future career path. I intend on entering Law School in the Fall of 2016. By having the chance to be in an Attorney's Office for a summer, I gained an invaluable preview of what a career in Criminal Law would look like.

 

 

Below is a list of internships which have been completed by students.  As you can see from the list, we have long-standing relationships with some firms and organizations around Central Minnesota. 

The Office of Experiential Learning is very helpful source for organizing these opportunities.
