Week of 3-21 to 3-25 (Fifth Post)

Hello Fellow Interns,

Well its late, and I almost forgot to post up my blog tonight. Luckily my week was very brief so this should not take too much of your time.

Another Week of Papers  !

Papers here, papers there, I can see papers everywhere ! In essence my week consisted of hour to hour organizing and copying papers. That was basically the week, and why should it not ? You see, many things any attorney does is grounded by the foundation of organization. I have a very low habit of keeping things organized, so in return I am actually learning something.

SO.......that is really all you did ?

Yes it is, yet I believe this week will be a lot funner. I have not been to the courthouse or the law library in three weeks :'( so I am really hoping to get to both soon. All in all i am learning a lot, and the people I interact with have interesting tips about not only law, but also in life. They also display humor often. Many of the attorneys at the office have a running gag of stating "so, do you still wanna be a lawyer ?", and all I can help but do is smile and say "Yes, sir/mam".


I hope everyone has a great week, and thank you for taking the time to read my blog :)

Week of 3-14 to 3-18 (Fourth Post)

Hello Fellow Interns,

Well this week nothing interesting really happened. I was sick on tuesday, so I had to work on Friday which is usually my off day. During the week I helped another attorney on her case. The help I gave consisted of typing of 200 names and info on a spreadsheet in excel.  So no trials were seen last week :(

Hopefully this week will be a lot more entertaining and more educative. One of my favorite things to do at the firm is to learn about stuff :D ! Yet, sometimes there are other things that must be completed before getting back to the fun stuff. All in all last week was good, and I loved helping the attorney whom appreciated my help. Lets see how this week goes and hope for more.

Everyone have a great week !

Week of 3-7 to 3-11 (Third Post)

Hello Fellow Interns,

Its around that time of the year when Seniors get that good ol senioritis :D, but iam gonna hold out from it just for this internship. So last week was great as usual. Once again i worked on a few projects given to me by my PA in regards to a few cases he is working on. I was slightly disappointed that one of the trials I was scheduled to go to was canceled by the judge. Yet, this was another opportunity to work even more within the environment of an attorney.

So I believe that I have concluded that an attorney can really think on their heels very quickly. It seems as if there is always an activity that is available or one that can be created, which is a good thing. I did a lot of research this week on a number of judicial issues and code sections. I look forward this week on continuing my research from the previous weeks. So, that essentially sums up my week.

Week of 2-28 to 3-4 (Second Post)

Hello Fellow Interns,

Well another week has passed, and a new week begins :). Last week was interesting as usual. During most of the week I helped my PA with reviewing some of the cases he has at the moment and second checking his work. It seems as though he has to put in a lot of hours into this job, because an assignment he gave me took almost three intern days ! Yet, it was fun. Each and every task that has been given to me has been completed to 100% precision.

I hope the coming weeks are just as fun as last week :). This week i am supposed to go to a few trials at the courthouse. I think its going to be a murder trial or something of those sorts 0_o. I feel like iam running out of words for my blog, so I wonder if i should start doing videos instead ? Well, anyways I hope everyone has a good week at their jobs. Peace.
