Office Volunteers/Interns

Community volunteers in the Boulder District Attorney’s Office contribute in a number of areas.

The Office also offers a limited number of law clerk positions each semester for law school students, and internships for undergraduate students. Please click on the specific area you are interested in on the menu to the left.

Victim advocates work one-on-one with crime victims, providing support, information and guidance through the entire court process, including keeping victims informed of the status of their case, contacting witnesses for court appearances and helping maintain case records and files. Join a dynamic and diverse group of people assisting victims of crime.

The Community Protection Division attempts to resolve complaints which cover a wide variety of issues encountered by Boulder County consumers. Volunteers and staff attempt to negotiate a fair settlement between consumers and businesses to keep issues out of court, in matters including auto repair, retail sales, contractors, home repair and more. Consumer complaints may originate in-person, or by phone, email or mail.

Volunteers and staff also provide information and resources to all community members on issues of consumer protection such as unwanted phone calls and solicitations, identity theft, undertaking home repairs, banking and credit issues, and debt collection matters.

Volunteers work with County Court Deputy DAs as arraignment assistants.

During the arraignment process they assist with legal advisements and agreements between the DA’s office and those charged with misdemeanor criminal offenses.

Law Clerks assist county court DAs with plea bargaining at arraignments and drafting appeal briefs. Law Clerks will also assist both county and district court DAs with legal research, drafting motions, and trial preparation. Law Clerks will have the opportunity to observe trials and participate in training opportunities when available. Law students authorized to appear under the Student Practice Act will have the opportunity to appear in court to argue bond, dispose cases, and prepare and conduct motions hearings and jury trials.

For law clerk positions, please directly contact Adam Kendall, akendall@bouldercounty.org

Pre-Law Undergraduate Interns assist the many units contained within the District Attorney’s Office. Interns are provided the opportunity to work with each unit/division of the office on various case management tasks and needs. Interns attend office events, court hearings, jury trials, and a variety of events with both Law Enforcement agencies and Judicial Court staff. This internship is in person only. This is a volunteer-based internship aimed at providing entry level legal experience to undergraduate students and recent undergraduates.

We are no longer accepting applications for the summer semester, please check back in August 2024 for information on the fall semester application period.
