Reflections: The LJA internship provided the unique and invaluable experience of working directly with Judges and Justices at various levels in the New York court system. I learned something new every day, whether it was from debriefing with the Judge or Justice and court attorney, observing virtual proceedings, or completing research and writing projects. I developed meaningful relationships and engaged in productive discussions during each rotation. I am grateful for the LJA’s efforts in building such a robust program for law students.
