    I clerked for the Los Angeles' DA Office simply by contacting them and asking them if I could volunteer b4 going to law school. Luckily, they have a community volunteer opportunity where you literally shadow DA's in their day to day jobs and do a variety of tasks that are non-law related and law related.
    Also, community legal clinics, workshops, and law fairs hosted by pro-bono legal organizations always need volunteers to help out. I've been volunteering as a legal translator for a pro-bono legal organization for a few years now. Just look up what you're interested in in your local area and I'm sure they have opportunities. And if they don't, it doesn't hurt to ask. All the best.
