Giving Back: Volunteering at the Anchorage Public Defender Agency

Dougal Neralich

This issue’s “Giving Back” column presents the first of several journal entries by Seattle University School of Law students who received grants to undertake public interest work over the summer. As part of this program, offered through the school’s Public Interest Law Foundation, the students kept journals documenting their experiences as interns. We hope their journal entries will provide real-world insights into what it means to do public interest work and will offer you additional ideas for your own pro bono efforts—whether you are a student or an established lawyer. We start with the journal of Dougal Neralich, who interned at the Public Defender Agency in Anchorage, Alaska.
