The Judicial Internship Program at the Associated Students of the University of Nevada (ASUN) provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to learn about the judicial council’s role in ASUN through direct involvement with actual council cases. Involvement in the program prepares students for the challenges of working as a justice. As Chief Justice, I will be directly involved in the internship program, shaping its curriculum and guiding you through the experience.
There are three Judicial Intern positions in total. To be considered for the position, any undergraduate student can submit an application, resume, and cover letter, provided they meet the two minimum qualifications for holding an ASUN office (per the ASUN Constitution, all ASUN Officers must be enrolled in at least 7 credits and maintain a minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA). Appointed Judicial interns will work directly with the council and have the opportunity to assist in case preparation, council marketing events, and other administrative work. Although interns will not be directly involved case deliberation, interns are encouraged to contribute in pertinent discussions and collaborate with current justices to work towards improving Nevada. Additionally, interns must attend all regularly scheduled judicial council meetings, build strong familiarity with the legal documents of the Association (Constitution, Statutes of the Associated Students, and others), and exercise consistent discretion about council business.
