Our Detroit office is currently accepting applications from law students or law school graduates for criminal defense internships for the spring, summer, and fall. Interns will gain experience assisting attorneys in preliminary examinations, motions hearings, and trials. You will be assigned to a team, and will work with other team members, social workers, and investigators in the holistic model. Graduates of our internship program often work as public defenders after law school, either at NDS or as an advocate of holistic defense elsewhere.

Ideal candidates are self-motivated, and passionate about issues in criminal and racial justice. To apply, please send a cover letter and resume. Address these materials to Training Director Kristin LaVoy. She will receive them at klavoy@ndsdetroit.org.
