Our Internship Training Opportunities:
The Forensic Panel consults on some of the most cutting-edge and compelling cases in North America. We have hosted post-graduate, graduate, and undergraduate trainees for almost twenty-five years in case internships that develop a range of skills at the intersection of science, law, research, and investigation.
The Forensic Panel offers internships to a small number of select talented and committed student volunteers from a range of disciplines, from psychology to criminal justice to pre-law, pre-med, linguistics, law enforcement, and social work career tracks. Interns acquire practical, relevant experience in the range of activities relating to forensic mental health and forensic medical case assessment. The internship refines students’ case review, evidence searching, working with standardized definitions, the limits of interpretability, and offers the opportunity to participate hands-on in influential casework.
Interns who are selected for the program are trained and supervised by The Forensic Panel’s staff to develop their professional aptitudes, and work alongside and interact with us in applying these skills in a practice setting that sets the standard for ethical and qualitative excellence.
Applicants with a particular interest and experience in academic publication will be given opportunities to collaborate on interesting projects and articles for the academic literature.
Review of pre-trial investigative, medical, and forensic records of cases; scientific research of case-related topics; editing and proofreading manuscripts; data-mining specific questions; other litigation-support investigative research, including internet searching, and testimony review. These opportunities require meticulously detail-oriented, honest, enthusiastic, responsible, and deadline responsive individuals, with precise written and verbal communication skills.
The opportunity requires 20 hr/week commitment for a period of 6 months. Exceptional interns may be offered an extended internship. Please note that this is a virtual internship to be completed remotely. We can be flexible with shift times to accommodate external work and study commitments. The internship is unpaid.
Check with your school’s Internship Coordinator BEFORE accepting the hiring offer to determine if this position satisfies the criteria for receiving academic credit.
