Internship Program

The office offers internship opportunities for undergraduates as well as law students. The intern program is designed to give students a first-hand view of what it is like to work in the Delaware County’s District Attorney’s Office. Undergraduate interns may conduct research on areas of law, investigate evidence in pending criminal cases, and assist in preparing cases for trial. All interns are invited to observe court hearings and trials. Interns are also invited to participate in policy discussions and policy development.

Interns can be assigned to work with Assistant District Attorneys in one or more of the following units/divisions: District Court, Juvenile, Diversion, Appeals, Special Investigations, Economic Crime, Gun Violence or the general Trial Division. Given the sensitive nature of the work, interns are expected to exercise excellent judgement in and out of the work place.
