The Undergraduate Internship Program is designed to give students exposure to the prosecutor’s role in the criminal justice system. At the Howard County State’s Attorney’s office, interns are an integral part of our workforce. Students gain exposure to criminal case prosecution by being given meaningful work and a chance to leave their mark.

The internship program also affords students the opportunity to get “real world” experience in their area of study, possibly for college credit. The program is intended to provide knowledge, skills, and experiences that an intern can apply to future challenges and long-term professional pursuits, while also giving back to the community.

Students are required to give the office a minimum number of hours per week. If a student is performing the internship for academic credit, it is the student’s responsibility to communicate the institutional requirements to our office before the internship begins.   We have spring, summer, and fall semester internship programs available.  Spaces are limited. Internships will be selected after a detailed review. If selected for an interview, you will be contacted via phone and/or email.  Please ensure your information on your resume is up to date. All internships are unpaid positions.  Please send in your resume by the following dates:

Summer – March 15th

Fall  – July 31st

Spring – October 31st

To apply, submit a cover letter and resume to sao@howardcountymd.gov by the posted date.

In addition to internships, we have another program called Law Days of Summer.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about how the court functions and positions that are offered (attorney, administrative, paralegal, court admin positions. Etc.).  More information will be provided on our social media pages and our website in coming months. Thank you for your interest.
