This experience gave me the opportunity to look at businesses from another perspective. In school, I was taught pure theory. I was taught to focus on shareholder's wants and customer's needs. However, the internship took me to another level of a business such as the compliance with laws and regulations. I was exposed to real business problems. This placement enhanced my business skills and I learned new areas in my field.

Thank you once again for giving me this opportunity!

My placement experience contributed to my career development by that it helped me know the judicial procedures and how the district court handles cases and how different judges have different point of views. I want to be a lawyer in the future, and attending court really helped me decide if I really like the field or not. I learned that being a lawyer is not an easy job and requires lots of attention to detail.
