"My internship was a terrific experience from both humanitarian and professional perspectives. The appreciation I received from those who were in terrible predicaments and needed our help was immensely satisfying, and the opportunity to develop legal skills while evaluating cases, working with attorneys to prepare cases, and observing court proceedings was a valuable supplement to law school."
