Internships

TFDP offers internship opportunities for law students. Information about law student internships is below. Currently we are unable to offer social work internships or field placements, or internships for students who are not in law school.

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 currently only accept applications for law student interns. Other students wishing to volunteer with TFDP are encouraged to fill out our volunteer questionnaire.

We are not currently recruiting interns, but please check back for future opportunities. We will begin accepting applications for Summer 2022 in September 2021.

If you are a law student who is interested in learning more about legal internships at TFDP, please email admin@fairdefense.org.

We do not currently offer social work internships or field placements, although we hope to in the future.
