Job Shadow in Law in Yuma

We prosecute all felonies and a broad range of misdemeanors in Yuma County.  The Yuma County Attorney's office has a variety of court hearings that are open to observation by interns. Someone shadowing would need to be at our office by 8:15 am in order to make it to court on time. They would need to be dressed in court appropriate clothing. I would allow them to sit with me in court and we can talk about the various hearings held. I would take them to lunch with some of my colleagues and discuss the practice of law we engage in as prosecutors. After lunch I would again show them various hearings and then discuss how a case moves through our office. The student would be allowed to leave as needed in the afternoon. There would also be other opportunities depending on the day the student is in the office. Monday through Thursday would be best, as there is often no court on Fridays. The type of hearings depend on what is on the court's calendar for that date. I would be available to discuss with the student more details as the date gets closer. This job shadow opportunity is being provided by a UA alum who received his BS in Psychology in 2009 and his JD in 2010.

The most interested students would be those interested in pursuing a law degree.

This is part of the UA Job Shadow Program (JSP). The JSP is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to gain first-hand exposure to a career field and be mentored by actual professionals. Unless otherwise noted, the experience is one day long and will take place sometime during Spring Break, March 5-9. This is not an employment opportunity and future employment with the organization is not associated with this program. You may apply to no more than 5 JSP opportunities, and if accepted, you must attend a JSP orientation before receiving the contact information for your host. For more information, please visit
