The Department of Public Defense (DPD) is now actively recruiting 2nd year law students to begin a 10 week paid internship in our Family Defense Units beginning in June 2019. This is an excellent opportunity for students contemplating pursuing a career in public defense or interested in learning more about public defense. This is a rolling application – the four internship positions will remain open until filled. We are an institutional provider of family defense representation, which allows for specialization in this important area. Our family defense practice represents parents and children in cases in which the state has alleged child maltreatment and sought the removal of the child/ren from the home and/or termination of parental rights. Employment at DPD offers the chance to practice public defense at a very high level, while living in a vibrant urban environment surrounded by unparalleled natural beauty.
