Office of the Child Advocate: For Students

OCA provides a flexible, well-rounded experience to its interns and law clerks.  Due to the nature of the work, OCA requires that students complete their freshman year of college, or their first semester of law school, prior to participating in an internship or clerkship.  While OCA considers each applicant on an individual basis, students pursuing some type of public service degree (Social Work, Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, Criminal Justice, etc.) are preferred.  OCA can accommodate students with internship requirements for their major as well as those just interested in gaining experience and a better understanding of available career opportunities. 

Due to the sensitive nature of the work, we insist that all students sign a Confidentiality Agreement and successfully complete a Child Protection Registry check.
