Reprieve Australia is calling for expressions of interest for law students or graduates to volunteer in the United States.
Our volunteer program provides assistance to defense lawyers in a capital trial and appellate offices. We place volunteers with lawyers who have otherwise limited resources to see that the rights of their clients are fiercely protected. Our volunteers conduct extensive research, manage and file voluminous materials, visit prisons and meet with witnesses and families all in order to keep people from execution.
Placements can be challenging. Our volunteers work diligently in high stakes professional environments. Volunteers are expected to be able to respond swiftly and productively to the dynamic demands of local lawyers, and retain their composure and commitment at all times.
