Oakland Pro Se Department Information
The Oakland Pro Se Department externs assist the Pro Se Department staff attorneys in managing prisoner habeas corpus and civil rights cases for the Oakland judges. Externs will participate in the extern activities (court days, social events) of the Oakland judges’ chambers and will work closely with the court’s career staff attorneys. Externs will research and draft proposed procedural and dispositive orders in prisoners’ cases challenging their convictions and conditions of confinement. Students with a special interest in criminal law and/or prison law are especially encouraged to apply.
