The Dallas Association of Young Lawyers is embarking on a new initiative designed to help young lawyers gain valuable courtroom and trial experience. Lawyers selected to participate in the Lawyer on Loan Program will be supervised by experienced city prosecutors and have the opportunity to try minor criminal offenses to juries and to judges.

Selected participants will be responsible for reviewing case files set for trial, selecting a jury, giving opening statements, examining the witnesses, preparing jury charges, and making closing arguments and will work under the supervision of a city prosecutor.

The pilot program is focused on Royce City and the City of Carrollton.

Anyone interested in being selected to this program, must complete an application and return it by 5:00 p.m., March 11, 2016.

An application can be found here.
