I had no idea what to expect going into my summer position at the FBI. Heck, I wasn’t even sure I would be working there until two weeks before my expected start date—they were still adjudicating my clearance and talking to every roommate, neighbor, and employer I had interacted with in the last seven years. When I got the email at the end of May that yes, I would be allowed in the building, and no, they didn’t uncover anything they wanted to arrest me for, I breathed a big sigh of relief—and immediately commenced worrying about everything else.

So how did I wind up in a situation where I was living in the Deep South and immersing myself in work that I hadn’t had much exposure to before law school?

I got lucky.

First year law students have the privilege to choose where they want to work for the summer – not simply wherever will take them. Here are some of the resources available to NYU Law students.

I am taking an Eighth Amendment Law and Litigation course, taught by Professor Bryan Stevenson. He is brilliant, and the course is easily the most influential one I’ve taken, ever.

We interviewed the client, researched his case, and repeatedly rehearsed our arguments. We were as prepared as two law students who have never represented a client could be.

My internship at the Newark Law Department ended in mid-August, and looking back, I realize I learned several career lessons. One of the most important: Whenever a staffer offers you a chance to work on a project, jump at it. […]

My internship at the Ghana Center for Democratic Development is drawing to a close, and so it’s a good time to look back and think about the projects I’ve done, and what I’ve learned during my internship.
