"My experience as an intern has given me valuable exposure to the field and the confidence to pursue my career choices. Interning allowed me to better understand exactly what it's like to be an attorney, but it also granted me great connections for my future."
"Throughout this internship, I had the opportunity to work alongside both juvenile and SVU attorneys. I had not previously been exposed to these specific types of cases, and it was a really interesting, eye-opening experience. I learned so much from reading trial transcripts, observing court, and discussing cases with attorneys, victim advocates, and my fellow interns. My experiences at the courthouse solidified my decision to follow this career path and taught me even more about the positive influence criminal attorneys have on their communities."
