Legal Internship, Fall 2020
The intern will work in the Office of Assigned Counsel section of the Adult Criminal Division. Legal interns assist the Pro Per Coordinator in the active management of the Pro Per caseload. Interns experience hands-on work with attorneys and investigators, interact with scores of clients, assist with case organization and research, prepare motions and other written documents for the benefit of actual clients, and attend a variety of court hearings. Students who are PTLS certified by the State Bar may be able to appear in court and represent clients under the supervision of an attorney. Certified interns gain practical litigation experience, interact with judges and the local Bar, and learn skills that will set them far above their peers. 2L and 3L students are preferred, but there are a limited number of positions for 1Ls. Students PTLS certified by the California State Bar are preferred. Must commit 16+ hours per week during school semesters and 32+ hours per week during the summer. Given court schedules, students should have blocks of time available (i.e. 8 am - 12 pm or 1 pm - 5 pm).

Tentative Program Dates: August 25 to December 4, 2020.

Application Deadline: June 12, 2020.
