As I approach the final stretch of my internship, I want to take the time to pause and reflect on my experiences thus far as an intern in the office.
To start, this internship has reinforced my desire to pursue a legal career. Witnessing the intelligent and capable prosecutors in action over the past three months has been extremely encouraging as I prepare to begin law school in the fall. The field of law is a challenging profession, and this experience has reinforced that idea. Being an attorney requires courage, determination, a competitive spirit, and most importantly, the heart to stand up for what you know to be right. I am prepared to tackle this challenge in hopes that I can be the voice for someone who cannot speak for themselves.
I have also gained valuable insight as to everyday office functions. I have had the privilege of attending meetings with detectives and police officers regarding current cases, tagging along with attorneys to court, touring Lexington’s forensic department, and meeting with victims themselves. Overall, it was refreshing to experience these ideas outside of the classroom. I value the real world experience offered within the office.
I look forward to enjoying my last few weeks in the office. Stay tuned!
