The Honorable Christopher J. Burke, U.S. Magistrate Judge for the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, is currently accepting applications for a full-time internship position for the Summer of 2019. Eligible applicants will be college students with significant academic achievements, a demonstrated writing ability and strong interpersonal communication skills. A student with an interest in a future legal career may particularly benefit from the internship. It is likely that a small monetary stipend will be available to the intern selected.
The intern chosen will work under the direction of the Judge and his staff. A significant part of the intern’s work will relate to the Court’s High School Fellowship Program, a community outreach program which the Court has offered every summer since 2016. More information about the HSFP can be found on the Court’s website, at http://www.ded.uscourts.gov/high-school-fellowship-program. The intern’s involvement with the HSFP will include: (1) assisting Judge Burke’s chambers staff with administrative tasks; (2) overseeing the day-to-day activity of the HSFP fellows; and (3) attending, along with the HSFP fellows, a series of presentations from judges and attorneys regarding the Federal and State legal systems. The intern will also assist Judge Burke with a number of other special projects relating to District Court proceedings.
Applicants with interest should submit a cover letter and resume to:
United States District Court for the District of Delaware
844 N. King Street, Unit 28
Wilmington, DE 19801
Questions may also be directed to Judge Burke’s chambers staff at (302) 573-4591.
