The Northern Virginia Capital Defender Office (CDO), located in Tysons, VA, seeks highly motivated graduate students pursuing a degree in Forensic Psychology, Social Work or related field, with an interest in assisting with the zealous representation of defendants facing the death penalty. The CDO is a pretrial office under the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission that represents people who are charged with capital offenses and who are facing a possible death sentence.
