Advice I would give to someone planning to do an internship in this career field would be to ask a lot of questions, take a lot of notes and to really pay attention to what is being taught, each task that is given and really take the time out to learn the material. My favorite experience was going to the Washtenaw county courthouse and listening to hearings. I had never been in a courthouse before so it was a new and fun experience for me. I would say I’ve grown while being at this internship in a lot of different ways, at first it was just an internship to gain experience, but it had turned into so much more than that and I’m very thankful for this opportunity. This internship has influenced my career and life plans as it has really given me a better perspective on what I would like to achieve in life.
