Los Angeles Superior Court implemented its volunteer, intern & extern outreach programs in July 1982 and since has become one of the largest in the nation. Volunteers, interns and externs log an average of 8,000 hours per month in more than 30 program areas.

There are three types of unpaid programs which are the Volunteer Program, Internship Program and Externship Program. These programs offer exposure to the complexities of the judicial process. Entry level programs offer opportunities to develop or strengthen each person’s abilities in areas such as document filing, computers and customer service to those with minimal or no work experience. Graduate or college students may assist with courtroom operations, administration and/or operational support. Professional volunteers can assist the Court in arbitration and mediation.
