Public Outreach Internship
Program Description: The Florida Supreme Court's Public Information Office offers an unpaid Internship opportunity available each college semester but only if qualified students apply. Students should fill out the standard application and submit it according to the instructions.
Interns perform work for one of the pioneering court communications offices in the nation noted for its cutting edge use of social media and other 21st Century forms of communication. Work will be related to communications and public outreach on behalf of the state's highest court. Students with a strong interest in law, communications, public speaking, and social media will be particularly interested. Interns in this program will be assigned to the Court's Public Information Office (PIO).
Located in downtown Tallahassee, the program provides high quality, practical work experience for current communications, criminology, pre-law, or education students or those studying in related fields at the undergraduate level. The Florida Supreme Court building, where interns will work, is directly across the street from the State Capitol in the heart of Florida's central governmental district.
The internship program will offer students the opportunity to earn credits while gaining valuable work experience in public speaking, teaching, writing, government, the law, and the court system.
This is an unpaid internship starting each semester. Students work can include helping conduct tours and speak to groups that come to the Court to learn about its history and role in state government. Interns also can be assigned to assist with the PIO's social media and other outreach programs.
University of Florida Students: The Court has partnered with the Bob Graham Center at the University of Florida in Gainesville for internships offered in the spring when the Florida Legislature is in session. UF students should use the separate Bob Graham Center's application process and specify a desire to work at the Florida Supreme Court. Students at other colleges still can apply using the process outlined above.
