Thank you for your interest in an internship with the Connecticut Sentencing Commission (CSC). The CSC serves as Connecticut’s clearinghouse for sentencing research and an independent source for criminal justice policy.
The mission of the Connecticut Sentencing Commission is “to review the existing criminal sentencing structure in the state and any proposed changes thereto, including existing statutes, proposed criminal justice legislation and existing and proposed sentencing policies and practices and make recommendations to the Governor, the General Assembly and appropriate criminal justice agencies.”
Internships are unpaid, volunteer positions open to graduate, law, and undergraduate students. Accepted applicants may arrange externships with their schools for course credit for their work with the Commission. Positions are also available for work-study students with school stipends (depending on applicant’s school). Applicants should have an interest in the work of the Commission, be able to communicate clearly, have strong research, and writing skills and computer proficiency.
