Hi, I am Jack Sheroan, a Senior at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School. Starting off at the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office I didn’t know much about law and wasn’t really considering it for a career field I might want to later explore. My first day at the office was filled with confusing terms and fast paced introductions. Since then Mrs. Persley has really helped me understand what is going on, and I really enjoy watching court and meeting different attorneys.
Everyone at Commonwealth Attorney’s Office has been welcoming, and willing to help me learn and enjoy this internship. I am very interested in hearing the cases presented during the meetings, and listening in on victims phone calls. I am also very excited to get to interview someone in the field of law, giving me a better understanding of the personal aspects of the job. I would be very interested in learning more about business law. One thing that really makes me enjoy law and the people who work in this office, is that they all have the sense that they are helping people, and doing good for our community. This is something I hope to feel in whatever career I choose.
While law may have been intimidating at first, I have really enjoyed my first few weeks at Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, and am eager to learn more.
