Fall Internship The candidate will join Misdemeanor units. Misdemeanor legal intern positions are available for second and third-year law students. The misdemeanor legal intern will provide direct representation, under the supervision of a staff attorney, to indigent clients. The intern will represent clients at arraignment, motion hearings, plea negotiations, trial, probation interviews, judgment, and sentencing. Students must be certified as a law student attorney to appear in federal magistrate court (See Certification Package) and must have either successfully completed or be currently enrolled in both evidence and civil procedure. Prior course work in criminal law and/or prior criminal law experience is desired. Because the misdemeanor legal intern provides ongoing representation to his or her clients, this position is ideally suited for a student seeking clinical hours who can commit to the position for more than one semester. Students work 20 hours per week during the school year and 40 hours per week during the summer months. Deadline : 30 June.
