This summer I will be interning as a certified law student at the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. Conducting prosecutions for public offenses, detecting crime, and investigating criminal activity is the central point of the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. I have been placed in the preliminary hearing department at the Airport Branch Courthouse. As a certified law student, I will be conducting routine felony preliminary hearings and misdemeanor prosecutions under a supervising attorney. In addition, I will be researching and drafting legal memorandums and motions pertaining to relevant criminal procedural issues. Focusing on courtroom trial skills and improving my legal research and drafting skills will equip me with the necessary skills to be a fair and effective prosecutor.
