Law student Angela Jennings shares her experiences as an intern and extern at the Tulsa County Public Defender’s Office.
In September of 2010, I started working for marginalized and indigent criminal defendants as a student Intern for the Tulsa County Public Defender’s Office. In June of 2012, I had the opportunity to escalate my involvement in the office as an Extern. I am not only gaining valuable experience, but actively assisting in life-changing and policy-changing litigation as well.
I have interviewed over one thousand clients charged with felony crimes under Oklahoma law and participated in numerous preliminary hearings as an Intern.
