CLARENCE'S PICK: Criminal Law Internship Program at the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia​

Are you an underclassman that would like to gain hands-on legal experience in Washington D.C.? Then this internship is for you! This hands-on experience allows for you to become knowledgeable in the legal process by getting out of the office and into the field! Interns are able to interview witnesses, serve subpoenas, and other activities. This is not a law internship that has you sitting behind a desk all day.
