  • Law student internship/clerkship: 


The San Luis Obispo District Attorney’s Office is pleased to offer a limited number of volunteer clerkships to law students and post-bar applicants awaiting bar results.  “One-L” law students typically conduct legal research, do legal writing, and assist in law & motion or trial preparation under the direct supervision of a trial attorney.  In addition, “Two-L” law students and post-bar applicants may also appear in court to represent the People in contested hearings and trials, if certified to do so by the California Bar.  The positions are volunteer, although many law schools offer academic credit for participation in the law clerk program.   For further information, or to apply for a clerkship, contact Deputy District Attorney Nikhil Dandekar at 805-781-5800 or [email protected].

All applicants must pass a background investigation.
