Introduction

The Los Angeles County Superior Court presently has one of the largest on-going volunteer services programs in the nation. The Court first implemented its volunteer programs in July of 1982 as a form of community outreach. Since then, the Court has developed a system of three unpaid programs: the Volunteer Program; the Internship Program; and the Externship Program.

These programs offer participants comprehensive exposure to the complexities of the Court’s functions. Entry level programs offer opportunities to those with minimal or no work experience to develop or strengthen skills in areas such as document filing, computers and customer service. More advanced programs let college or graduate students support courtroom operations and administration. Still other programs rely on professional volunteers to assist the Court in civil arbitration and mediation. As an indication of their scale, the programs let volunteers, interns, and externs log an average of 6,000 hours per month in more than 20 Court assignments.

These three volunteer programs form a collaborative effort and provide positive results for everyone involved including judicial officers, Court administration, staff, volunteers, interns, externs and, finally, our community.

The Volunteers, Interns and Externs provide daily assistance in helping the Court achieve its mission “To resolve and record legal matters.”
