Criminal Justice Major Gains Experience at Charlotte Courthouse

08.14.2014

HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 14, 2014 – People representing themselves in civil cases are getting help from High Point University criminal justice major Dylan Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald, a native of Newport News, Virginia, is interning with the SelfServe Office in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Courthouse. The office provides packets and forms for the litigants, and Fitzgerald helps guide them through the legal process. He says the experience will help him succeed in his future legal career.

The rising senior says the Office of Career and Internship Services was invaluable in helping him perfect his resume, and is grateful to Scott Ingram, assistant professor of criminal justice, for helping him find his passion.

“I never thought I would enjoy a law class, but his ‘Courts and Trials’ class and ‘Criminal Law’ class have been the most interesting classes I have ever taken,” says Fitzgerald. “He is always willing to give advice and information about law and law school outside of class.”
