Volunteer Intern/Extern Program

The volunteer, internship, and externship program is designed to give students a meaningful experience and exposure to our law practice. It is an excellent way to become acquainted with the Kitsap County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, pursue an interest in criminal law, and determine whether trial practice is a future career path. The positions are generally unpaid, but occasionally there is funding for a paid internship position depending on our current budget.  Many law schools offer credit for externship programs as well.

Description of Program: Primarily, interns will be assigned to the District and Municipal Court Division and will assist District Court Deputy Prosecuting Attorneys with their caseloads. This division handles prosecution of misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor offenses charged in the county, as well as appearing on traffic infraction matters.  Duties will include appearing in court for arraignments, pretrial hearings, probation violation hearings, along with a number of other types of court proceedings.  Interns will also assist in researching legal issues, writing briefs, and arguing motions in court.  Interns will have the opportunity to assist with trial preparation and, as scheduling permits, may participate in jury trials as well.

Qualifications: A genuine interest in criminal law and procedure; basic writing and computer skills; and willingness to work under frequent deadlines in the fast-paced environment of criminal litigation. All interns are required to submit a resume and cover letter through our website and pass a criminal history check prior to employment.

Summer internships are reserved for law students who have completed their second year and are Rule 9 eligible.  Occasionally, there are opportunities for law students who have completed their first year, but that will depend on the candidates and their abilities.

Consideration for Future Employment: Interns will be evaluated carefully by their supervising attorney for potential future employment. There is no guarantee, however, that an internship will lead to a permanent position on staff.

Selection Process:  Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter through our website to, and pass a criminal history check prior to employment. Qualified candidates will be interviewed by an intern selection committee.

For information regarding other positions, the Kitsap County Human Resources Department keeps a list of our openings. For more information click here.
