Law and Public Service Students Honored for Internships at County Offices

Students from the Law & Public Service Magnet Program were honored at the May 24th Monmouth County Freeholders Meeting for successfully completing their spring internships at the Monmouth County Offices. 

Law and Public Service is a rigorous program geared toward highly motivated students with demonstrated interests and abilities in history, politics, government, law, volunteerism, and leadership. Skills targeted for development include: problem-solving, critical thinking, reading, and writing, oral communication, research, and organization. The values of citizenship, justice, and service serve as the foundation for academic study. Students study history as it relates to the development of the United States and the evolution of world societies and governments. Students will explore political thought, ethical philosophy, and leadership theory. Special attention is given to New Jersey history and civic affairs. Skills and knowledge are enhanced by active experiences in volunteerism and public service on the school, local, state and national levels. Career opportunities are explored during internships in government offices, volunteer agencies, and law-related institutions.
