Due Date: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 5:00 pm
In this internship you will have the opportunity to staff Oregon parole cases with a licensed mitigation investigator and a group of your peers.

Throughout this process, you will prepare a professional letter to client explaining your feedback, collect and format supplemental materials to help client develop knowledge of particular issues/topics of relevance, and a final debrief letter before the conclusion of your internship to close your file.
