Parole Packet Representation Team Lead

Team Leads will take on a leadership role in the Parole Packet Project. Team Leads will be placed on a team with other students working on a Parole Packet and will assist with the normal team duties of crafting a parole packet, which include interviewing the client and family members, affidavit drafting, research, and writing. Along with these duties, the Team Lead also will be responsible for overseeing the administrative responsibilities of the team. This includes calling team meetings, submitting the team travel documents, and taking the lead on compiling exhibits when the team is finalizing the parole packet. Team Leads also are in charge of tracking the team’s progress and communicating that progress with the Pro Bono Scholars and the Mithoff Supervising Attorney. Team Leads will work closely both with their team and the Mithoff Supervising Attorney and Pro Bono Scholars for deeper involvement in the Parole Project and the Mithoff Program. Students with prior work experience may find this role more manageable, but anyone passionate about getting people out of prison and interested in taking on a leadership role is encouraged to apply.


Parole Project, Mithoff Pro Bono Program

The Parole Project is an internal project of the Richard and Ginni Mithoff Pro Bono Program. Its mission is to prepare parole packets on behalf of incarcerated women in order to provide the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole with information that enables the Board to gain a more holistic, human picture of incarcerated individuals it reviews for parole.
