The Office of the Public Defender welcomes volunteers and interns to assist in our mission. Opportunities are available to those who are studying to become lawyers, investigators, social workers and those interested in pursuing a legal support staff career. We have designed our internship program to assist students in obtaining school credit for the training and work completed at our office. Based on your interest and experience, we will try to match you with the appropriate internship or volunteer position.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email your resume to Program Coordinator Jennifer Loyless at

Please note that we do not have volunteer opportunities available for high school students. Students must be in undergraduate school or beyond in order to be considered.
