This internship program offers students the opportunity to apply for “for-credit” internship positions with the Austin Federal Public Defender’s Office. Information on the Federal Public Defender Office is available at: http://txw.fd.org/austin. Your supervisory attorney will be Supervisory Assistant Federal Public Defender Horatio R. Aldredge, 504 Lavaca St., Suite 960, Austin, TX 78701-2860. While the internship requires a 10 hour per week commitment, not all of those hours need to be done at the Fed. Public Defender’s office - many can be done at U.T.
Students earn 4 credits (pass/fail) over two semesters (2 credits per semester) – offered Fall and Spring every year. Students must commit to a full academic year of internship study. Students are encouraged to enroll in the Fall 2021 Adv. Fed. Crim. Prosecution and Defense seminar, co-taught by Professors Klein and Remis, and to take a 3-unit Federal Criminal Law course taught by Prof. Susan Klein in Spring of 2022, but these course are not required.
Students interested in the internship for the 2021-2022 academic year should visit with Prof. Susan Klein, at (512) 203-2257, or email@example.com. Better yet, come to my office hours on Wednesdays from 3 – 4. You can get the link to that from my assistant Nick Charlsworth, at (512) 232 2992, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you may call Prof. Aldredge at (512) 916-5025, or send him an e-mail at horatio_aldredgefd.org.
