Public Defender's Interns

 

 Meet the Judges 2018 2

 

  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.

 Kelly Doyle

Kelly Doyle is a 3L at McGeorge School of Law and a native of Sacramento. She received her B.A. in History at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 2013.  Following her undergraduate career, she worked at a number of jobs revolving around the political scene at the California State Capitol, including staffing in the California State Assembly and working as a legislative aid at a prestigious Sacramento lobbying firm.  However, her passion for public service and her interest in the legal profession ultimately drove her to law school.  Before her time at the Yolo  County Public Defender’s Juvenile Unit, Kelly worked at the Children’s Law Center of Sacramento as a legal intern, serving Sacramento’s foster youth.  Her experience at her former employer fostered a passion for juvenile advocacy and a desire to serve children in the juvenile delinquency system. She feels very lucky to have her position and enjoys working with the amazing attorneys at the Yolo County Public Defender’s Office. In her spare time, Kelly can be found binging Netflix, puttering around her garden, or spoiling her ungrateful cat, Midge.
