U.S. Attorneys' Office Internship Information Session

The United States Attorneys’ Office in Springfield is staffed by 8 assistant U.S. Attorneys (AUSAs) who investigate and prosecute federal crimes in western Massachusetts. One AUSA also represents the federal government in civil cases.

The U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts represents the entire state and its 6.8 million residents. Of the 94 U.S. Attorneys’ Offices throughout the United States and its territories, the District of Massachusetts is one of the busiest, prosecuting a broad range of cases including national security, white collar crime, public corruption, cybercrime, narcotics and money laundering, organized crime and gang violence, and civil rights violations. In addition, the Office’s Civil Division tackles complex cases ranging from large affirmative health care fraud to bankruptcy.

Student interns assist the AUSAs with a variety of important tasks, including research and preparation of legal documents in both civil and criminal cases. The interns also have the opportunity to participate in many aspects of the federal criminal justice process.

Attend this information session to learn more about the Office's Summer internship program, which is open to college seniors, juniors, and sophomores.

Re-presenting Nonotuck: The Landscape Paintings of Hitchcock and Gloman

until Oct 29 Frost Library, Mezzanine Gallery

Professor David Gloman has partnered with Kurt Heidinger, director of the Biocitizen School, to create an art event that inspires the public to imagine the unique biocultural character of the Nonotuck biome (also known as the central Connecticut River Valley) by “re-presenting” the landscapes that Orra Hitchcock depicted in the mid 19th century. Professor Gloman has located the sites where they were painted and created his own painted landscape portraits of those sites. View Gloman and Hitchcock's illustrations together in Frost Library's Mezzanine Gallery from September 4 - October 29.

The opening reception will be on September 27 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the Center for Humanistic Inquiry (2nd Floor, Frost Library).
