Law Clerk and Post-Bar Programs

The Federal Public Defender’s Office for the Central District of California (FPD-CDCA) offers a variety of intense and rewarding experiences to law students and recent post-bar graduates who wish to volunteer in an office dedicated to the zealous defense of our appointed clients. Our office has multiple law clerk programs in our trial unit, capital habeas unit (CHU), noncapital habeas unit (NCHU), and our appeals unit.

All clerkships are unpaid.
