RALEIGH — Attorney General Josh Stein has announced that Knightdale native Danielle Wilburn completed an internship with the North Carolina Department of Justice this summer.

Danielle earned valuable experience in the Criminal Division while serving the state. Danielle is a student at the Campbell University School of Law.

The North Carolina Department of Justice handles issues that affect every aspect of state government and the lives of North Carolina residents.

“Every day, I go to work with some of the smartest and most talented people in our state,” said Attorney General Josh Stein. “It was an honor to work with so many driven, intelligent interns this summer. I wish them the best of luck through the rest of their education and careers.”

Serving as a summer intern gave Danielle an opportunity to work alongside some of the state’s best attorneys to see first-hand the impact that the Department has on the state.

In addition to assisting the state’s attorneys, interns participated in a variety of activities to give them a perspective on the department’s work, including attending oral arguments in the appellate courts, touring the State Crime Laboratory, and visiting the North Carolina Executive Mansion for a reception with Gov. Roy Cooper.
