My internship at the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office has been full of learning opportunities so far, more than I expected to be honest. I have been to multiple court hearings and all of them have been very interesting (domestic violence, felony, preliminary hearings, misdemeanor court, and voir dire.) I’ve never been in a courtroom before, so experiencing the atmosphere in which all the “action” happens was quite interesting.
Mrs. Briana Persley has been wonderful in teaching me and explaining all procedures, when I first started she told it’ll be fun and I had some doubts, however she proved me very wrong. She is a pleasure to have as a mentor and she has taught me a lot so far. Thanks to her I attended a lot of court hearings, and she always answers all of my questions until she makes sure I understand.
Overall, it has been an amazing experience so far, and plenty of interesting things to look forward to in the coming weeks.
