Congratulations to the following 2L students who received paid summer internships with West Virginia Public Defender Services: Steven Turner, Kolbe Page, Kenyatta Thorpe, Lauren Shadrick, Jessica Miller, and Matthew Roohollahi.  WVPDS recruits at ASL during the fall semester each year, and has commended ASL on the quality and work ethic of our students.  The WVPDS summer internship program allows students to represent indigent clients in a supervised practice in one of 10 to 12 Public Defender offices throughout West Virginia. Interns practice under a Rule 9 Practice Certificate (Third-Year Practice Certificate) and handle court cases.
