Legal Outreach at The Bronx Defenders for Summer 2013 Internship
During the week of August 5-8th, 2013, four rising sophomores from Legal Outreach interned with The Bronx Defenders. The interns were: Jazmin Bramble, Merari Denis, Adenique Lisse, and Carlos Salas. Below are some of their thoughts on the week.
I had a pretty amazing week at the Bronx Defenders. Going to court, meeting different lawyers, being assigned a mentor, and learning about actual cases made me realize what I like and don’t like about the law.

At the Bronx Defenders, I learned what it’s like to be a real defense attorney. I experienced the busy life of a lawyer, going from courtroom to courtroom and meeting with clients, as I shadowed my mentor. The lesson that I learned was that as an attorney, you need to do what’s in your client’s best interest, even if it means going out of your way.
