Who is subject to this regulation?
A law student who has completed at least three semesters of law school may serve as a legal intern.
Without the presence of the supervising attorney, a legal intern may give advice to a client, including a government agency, on legal matters provided that the legal intern gives a clear prior explanation that the legal intern is not an attorney and the supervising attorney has given the legal intern permission to render legal advice in the subject area involved.
A legal intern may represent an eligible person, the state in criminal prosecutions, a criminal defendant who is represented by the public defender, or a government agency in any proceeding before a federal, state, or local tribunal, including an administrative agency, if prior consent is obtained from the tribunal or agency upon application of the supervising attorney. Each appearance before the tribunal or agency shall be subject to any limitations imposed by the tribunal or agency including, but not limited to, the requirement that the supervising attorney physically accompany the legal intern.
