Seattle Municipal Court Internships Winter/Spring 2016
Applications due: December 4, 2015
Applications may be submitted in person in the Sociology Advising Office (203 Savery) until 4PM on Friday, December 4, 2015 OR emailed by 11:59PM on Friday, December 4, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Sociology Department is happy to announce that Seattle Municipal Court has more openings for our 2-quarter internship partnership than we had previously anticipated. In order to extend this opportunity to more students, we are reopening the application for the Seattle Municipal Court Internships only. The new application deadline for the Seattle Municipal Court Internships is Friday, December 4.
Some Seattle Municipal Court programs have expanded, creating even more opportunities for students to help. The Court Resource Center now has onsite providers from DSHS, Seattle Public Library, Public Health, Conviction Careers, and Sound Mental Health. Starting in January, it will also have Farestart and a DUI Victims Panel. Interns will help to connect people with these and other resources and learn firsthand the strengths, barriers and challenges for the Seattle Municipal Court client population.
This really is an exciting time for students to come on board. Seattle Municipal Court has a new court administrator, a new presiding Judge, and the new year always brings a few surprises. Seattle Municipal Court also has more probation counselors who have asked if they can work with a student intern this year. They are excited to mentor and teach students how to manage caseloads and work in a criminal justice setting.
Students interested in criminal justice, social work, political science, or just working in a professional office setting are strongly encouraged to apply. In addition to the aforementioned internship opportunities, the Seattle Municipal Court HR department has added a job shadow component for students with particular interest in Human Resources.
