The Miami Public Defender's Office

Post-graduate positions: The Miami Public Defender's Office is currently interviewing 3L students and licensed attorneys for post-graduate Assistant Public Defender positions. We have a vibrant and collaborative work environment staffed by nearly 200 mission-driven attorneys plus investigators, mitigation specialists, secretaries, and paralegals dedicated to ensuring equal justice to persons in jeopardy of losing their life or liberty who cannot afford to hire a private attorney. We recruit locally and nationally with just one goal in mind: Putting together a diverse team of outstanding men and women from all racial and ethnic backgrounds who are able to provide high quality representation to our clients. We are nationally recognized for the high caliber of our training program. New hires participate in new hire orientation. They receive additional training upon being assigned to specific divisions. We have weekly training sessions and training attorneys dedicated to the professional growth of our attorneys at every level of their development. Given the extensive office resources devoted to training new assistant public defenders, applicants offered and accepting a position for employment must be willing to sign and honor a two-year commitment document. Starting salary is $50,000 plus excellent benefits.

Internships: The Miami PD offers both Certified Legal Internships (CLIs) and volunteer internships. The deadline to apply for summer internships is March 15. CLIs are given hiring priority and an expedited interview process for attorney positions.

To apply for an internship or post-graduate position: Please visit the Miami Public Defender's Office here.
