Reflections: Through the Latino Judges Association internship, I had the remarkable opportunity to put my first year of legal education into practice, while getting to learn more about the legal system in New York. I am extremely grateful not only to have worked with such accomplished persons but also to have had the chance to learn more about their personal and professional experiences navigating the legal field.
