Internship Opportunity: Forensic Research Remote Internship

Forensic Research Remote Internship: The Depravity Standard

About The Depravity Standard:  The Depravity Standard is a groundbreaking effort aiming to standardize the distinction of the worst of crimes. A multi-tiered approach has carefully studied legal
case decisions, attitudes of the general public, and is now at the stage of reviewing actual case
material to refine an evidence-based appraisal of the intents, actions, and attitudes that embody the
most depraved crimes. The research is directed by The Forensic Panel and Dr. Michael Welner, a
nationally renowned forensic psychiatrist. For more information on the project, visit

About the Project:  Selected students will gain valuable experience in reviewing case materials from
a range of actual murder convictions and actively participate in forensic science research. The
project refines students’ aptitude for case review, evidence searching, working with standardized
definitions, the limits of interpretability, and offers the opportunity to participate hands-on in
influential justice research.
