Here are a few examples of roles that our Criminal Justice Interns have taken on before:
Criminal Defense Paralegal
Criminal defense paralegals have duties similar to those of civil paralegals, such as interviewing clients, fact-checking, drafting documents, and investigating cases. However, criminal law is more complex and involves a more detailed process than civil law, therefore criminal defense paralegals are expected to have a deep understanding of criminal procedures. They must also stay updated on changes in regulations and laws in terms of defendants’ rights, evidence collection methods, and court procedures.
Child Protective Services Worker
Child protective services workers investigate reports of suspected child abuse or neglect. They also work with parents and guardians to help ensure children’s safety and well-being, and to preserve family structures wherever possible.
A parole officer is responsible for supervising offenders who have been released from prison on parole. Parole officers must ensure that the parolee adheres to the conditions of their release, which may include drug testing, employment, and mandatory counseling. Parole officers also help parolees adjust to life after incarceration by assisting them in finding housing and employment.
Customs and Immigration Enforcement Officer
Customs and immigration officers work on the frontlines of national security by helping to prevent terrorists, weapons, and drugs from entering the country, while also checking travelers’ identification documents and ensuring they have valid visas. They work at airports, seaports, border crossings, and mail processing centers, allowing only authorized people and goods into the country.
