SPDTC Will Inaugurate Its 3rd Summer Law Clerk Cohort in May

In late May, SPDTC will host a three day orientation in Atlanta, Georgia, to prepare the 2012 Summer Law Clerk cohort (comprised of first and second year law students) for its summer internship program. The first day of orientation is held at SPDTC headquarters. Interns are welcomed into the SPDTC community and given a more formal overview of the program, its benefits, and expectations. The subsequent days consist of a joint orientation held by SPDTC and the Southern Center for Human Rights. These orientations provide more insight into the role of a public defender, by introducing investigative research tactics, legal writing and the client-centered representation model to the students. There are also informative panel discussions. For more information about this program, please visit the programs section.
