Internships

2021 Law Student Interns

TFDP law student interns perform a variety of important tasks, gaining valuable experience while making a real contribution to improving the Texas criminal legal system. In the past, legal interns have been involved in all aspects of litigation, from writing dispositive motions to discovery practice to client contact. TFDP interns also have conducted policy research and drafted advocacy materials.

TFDP accepts intern applications for full-time summer positions, as well as for part-time school-term positions. School-term interns often work via email and phone and do not need to be located in Texas. ​We are currently only accepting applications for law student interns. Other students wishing to volunteer with TFDP are encouraged to fill out our volunteer questionnaire.

We are currently looking for interns for summer 2021. Please see the full internship description here.

If you are a law student who is interested in legal internship opportunities at TFDP, please contact Jessica Johnson at jjohnson@fairdefense.org.
