Students Salute a Summer of Substantive and Rewarding Legal Work

Summer jobs for Rutgers School of Law–Newark students take as many different forms as there are legal practice areas. Students explore new areas of the law and reinforce classroom lessons in positions with the federal, state and local judiciary, private law firms, corporations, government offices, NGOs, and public interest organizations in the metropolitan area and across the country. As a law clerk at Fried Frank, Malika Brown ’15 (shown here) was able to test drive “my dream job” to which she’ll be returning after graduation. Caitlin Miller ’16 found the Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights a perfect match for her passion to fight for the underserved. At Lowenstein Sandler Wan Cha ’15 appreciated the diverse assignments and commitment to attorney development. The dedication to representing children that Shashwat Dave ’15 experienced at LAS’s Juvenile Rights Program boosted his determination to practice in that area. What was most rewarding to Linda Lee ’15 were the diverse and substantive assignments and supportive and collegial environment that Bressler afforded. For Tiffany Ornedo ’15, an internship at ACLU-NJ solidified her desire to become a public interest lawyer. | Read Story
