Due to the unique dual function of the Undergraduate Legal Aid Office, students are employed in two capacities. Student interns spend one semester assisting with client intake for students seeking legal help. Interns can then apply to work as paid Student Defenders, who assist students facing University Charges.
Many interns and Student Defenders are interested in pursuing a legal career. In recent years, students have gone on to attend law school at elite institutions such as Harvard, Duke, University of Virginia and Georgetown.
