Public Defender's Interns

 

 Meet the Judges

  Public Defender and District Attorney Interns Meet The Judges.

The Yolo County Public Defender’s Office offers internship opportunities for high school students, college students, law students and volunteer attorneys. Additionally, the social work program offers internship opportunities to work under the supervision of our LCSW’s and MSW’s in handling complex social histories, release plans, and connecting clients to needed mental health or substance abuse services. Our legal interns receive essential training in representing indigent clients and ultimately given experience to complete jury trials, suppression hearings, and participate in courtroom arguments while students in law school. Our goal is to develop our interns into zealous practicing advocates by the time they pass the state bar exam. The office offers internships beginning in the fall, spring, or summer semesters.
