Legal Interns

Northwest Defenders Association looks for enthusiastic Rule 9 eligible law students interested in social justice to work as legal interns.

Rule 9 Interns are supervised by an experienced Northwest Defenders Association attorney.  Interns in the District Court Unit represent clients charged with misdemeanors. Interns may also assist Felony Unit and Dependency Unit attorneys with legal research and writing assignments. The ability to communicate and work with clients of diverse ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds is a must.

Northwest Defenders Association does not compensate interns. The agency is a work-study eligible employer.

Interested law students should send resume, cover letter and solely authored writing sample to Marcus Naylor, 1109 First Avenue, Suite 300, Seattle, WA 98101 or to .
