During my time at the Commonwealth Attorney’s office, I have had the opportunity to learn many different things and have had the ability to learn about what it means to be a crime victims’ advocate, an attorney, and many other occupations. While shadowing Mrs. Persley, I was able to attend indictments, sentencings, and trials at both district and circuit courts. I have also been able to participate in on-hands activities, such as listening in on calls and interviewing a business professional. While interning at the office, we never had a dull day, and I was always learning something new. Before starting at the Commonwealth Attorney’s office, I was in the dark about everything that went on behind the scenes of the criminal justice system. Now that my time here is ending, I am looking back and realize how much I have learned. The routines that occur in real life criminal justice are quite different from the shows that I have watched, but are just as interesting, and what I have learned at the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office reassures my decision to choose a career under the pathway of criminal justice. It was a very eye opening experience, and one that I will cherish forever.
