During my time at the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, I’ve had the opportunity to learn more about the criminal justice and legal system, from start to finish. I’ve gotten to observe the duties of a crime victims’ advocate by listening to victims’ calls and seeing how they document their data from their caseloads. Along with that, I have also been able to observe preliminary hearings, misdemeanors and domestic violence cases in district and circuit courts. Because of my observations in court, I’ve been able to understand the way court works and how everyone’s position in the courtroom comes into play. While at the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, I was introduced to new concepts and learned something new every day.
