Summer Public Service Project with KASAP Available!

The Public Service Program has been notifed that the Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programs ("KASAP") is in need of four to five students to help with a project over the summer. 

KASAP is embarking on a big project to update many of their materials. One project is a compendium of sexual assault laws (civil, criminal and administrative) that was last updated in 2008. They would like to engage students to update the guide, broken into chapters. This project would be an ideal project for students who want to have a lasting impact on the field of sexual assault in Kentucky, and can do so from their own computer.

Interested students should contact Jina Scinta at jina.scinta@louisville.edu to obtain the ncessary forms to get public service credit.  Students will be signed up on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Judicial Internships Available

The Public Service Program has several judicial internships available for the summer. These opportunities would be especially beneficial to first year students who would like to add more legal experience to their resumes.

These internships are voluntary and students can work both full-time and part-time. Students can receive public service credit for the internships. Most of the judges are in Jefferson County Circuit, District and Family Courts, but we also have a judge in Bullitt County Circuit Court and in Clark County (IN) Circuit Court.

Some judges are asking for resumes from students by a certain deadline and others prefer to communicate by phone or e-mail. If you are interested in a judicial internship for the summer, please contact Jina Scinta ASAP at jina.scinta@louisville.edu.
