Student Internship (continuous)
The Criminal Justice Legal Foundation offers internships for class credit to undergraduate and graduate students interested in careers in criminal justice. Interns assist in postings for the Foundation's blog, www.crimeandconsequences.com, and perform research and drafting for studies and papers which have been utilized by state and federal lawmakers to enact reforms enhancing the effectiveness of law enforcement. The Foundation's research program is managed by its award winning Legal Staff and guided by an Academic Review Board of distinguished professors in public policy, government, and economics.
Past research topics have included: federal habeas corpus in death penalty cases, the effectiveness of California's juvenile justice system, and the effect of increased incarceration of habitual criminals on crime rates.
Students interested in an internship should call the Foundation at (916) 446-0345 to set up an appointment.
