Advocate for clients as an attorney, investigator, paralegal, social worker, or other support staff. The office seeks individuals with a demonstrated passion for defending the less fortunate as well as the skills and training necessary to execute the highest level of work.
Open only to second and third year law students, the program provides law students with hands-on experience meeting clients, researching the law, writing memos and motions, as well as assisting attorneys in the courtroom.
Volunteer Attorney Program (VAP)
Open to attorneys with limited courtroom experience, the VAP program requires a (more than) full-time, 4 month commitment in the Office’s Misdemeanor Unit. VAP lawyers are the only volunteers who are allowed to handle their own caseload and try cases.
