The internship program at the Judicial Institute of Maryland is designed to provide an opportunity for law students to experience a government sector workplace within the state judicial branch. Contact with judges and judicial branch employees and work on the development of courses for the Judicial Institute’s continuing judicial education program will give interns the opportunity to gain “real world” experience. Under the supervision of the Judicial Institute’s Program Director, the intern will assist in working with the curriculum development staff, conducting legal and interdisciplinary research, developing material for judicial education, and many other tasks. Additionally, interns will have the opportunity to attend conferences, classes and meetings with members of the judiciary.
