I’m a senior at Sayre School and as part of my second semester I had to find an intern to give me a better idea of what I would like to study in university and pursue as a career.  I chose to apply to intern at the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office because I had been accepted at  Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge to study Law and a good family friend had recommended this office because of the friendly staff and the involvement the interns are given. I also had to attend AP classes while I had my internship, so both the office and my school being downtown was extremely practical.  I have had the opportunity to experience hearings and trials as well as work on transcriptions for a case. I enjoy interning here because I’m given work that helps cases instead of just getting cups of coffee and I have really enjoyed being able to experience the courtroom.

During my time at the Commonwealth Attorney’s office, I have had the opportunity to learn and have more of an understanding about the law and how it works. Being able to shadow Mrs. Persley, I have been able to see what it means to be a Crime Victims Advocate and how important it is to keep everyone involved in the loop. I was able to attend hearings in a death penalty case so the judge could see what could be charged in a trial. I have also attended dockets to see what would happen next for whatever the crime may be. This site has opened my mind more towards either a law or criminal justice degree as I go into college this fall.
