Internship
The intern will have opportunity to learn how to provide client-centered and holistic representation in a real-world, practical setting. These internships are available during the academic year as well; academic-year interns are expected to work at least sixteen hours per week. Law students with a demonstrated interest in representing indigent clients are welcome to apply to become Rule 9 trial assistants. Senior law students who are selected to be courtroom advocates will serve as advocates for select Public Defender clients in either the Office's misdemeanor, juvenile or parental rights units. Each courtroom advocate is assigned to a particular attorney who supervises the student's handling of a limited portion of that attorney's caseload. Senior students eligible to be courtroom advocates are those who have successfully completed at least three semesters of law school and who are either currently enrolled in, or have completed, evidence and/or a trial practice course.

Deadline : Mid-April.
