Spring 2018 Law School Fellowship Program The candidate will join Child and Sex Assault Unit Division. Students attending participating law schools are eligible to apply. Fellows typically receive academic credit from their respective law schools in exchange for work with the office. The goal of this program is to further the student’s understanding of and ability to apply legal principles learned in the classroom to actual legal issues. Law School Fellows will be assigned to specific units within the office but will be required to work on other matters when the need arises. Must be self-motivated, well organized and have the ability to efficiently manage a number of responsibilities. Law School Fellows are required to draft legal motions, conduct hearings, and help Assistant District Attorneys prepare cases for jury trial. Must have prior approval from the student’s law school. Must apply for and be certified by the State Bar of California. Such certification status allows those Certified Legal Interns to research, write, and argue motions, present evidence at suppression motions and conduct hearings in the Superior Court under the direct supervision of an experienced prosecutor. Additionally a Certified Legal Intern may gain valuable experience in preparation of high profile cases or assist in the preparation of serious felony cases including such crimes as rape, felony assault, kidnap or murder trials. Eligible 3Ls only are considered.
