Certified Legal Interns (CLIS)
Law students who are certified under Rule 11 will have exposure to a variety of legal environments and processes necessary in representing clients in the criminal legal system. Our certified legal interns are assigned cases and work side by side with their supervising attorney on probable cause review, client consultation, case law research, investigations, communication with the state attorney, and trial preparation.
This is a tremendous opportunity if you are interested in gaining valuable experience working alongside experienced attorneys with real-world impact on clients while enhancing both oral and written advocacy skills, gaining confidence in your own knowledge of criminal law and procedure, as well as building and refining your courtroom presence.

We also accept non-certified legal interns and those looking to fulfill their pro-bono requirements. Students will be assigned to an attorney and asked to assist with researching case law, drafting motions and writs, and helping their supervising attorney prepare for upcoming court dates and trials.
