Attorneys work closely with their volunteer intern Investigators on a regular basis. Although volunteer investigators will be given some clerical duties, the vast majority of their work will be carried out in the community. Obviously, this is not a desk job.

They enable clients to make informed decisions about plea offers. Moreover, in the case of trial, the information and witnesses the volunteer investigators uncover provide the building blocks necessary to support the defense theory. The first week of the Criminal Law Internship Program is dedicated to an intensive training session that covers a wide variety of topics related to investigation procedures and the introduction to criminal law of Ghana, Africa.
