My 50 HoursPosted: January 31, 2014
The “baptism by fire” that serves as TFC’s orientation for interns was crucial to my experience there and I would not have had it any other way. On my first day, I met with a client and drafted various court forms. By the end of my first week, I had done client intake, sat in on case assessment meetings, researched various legal questions, provided clients with advice, drafted uncontested divorce papers and advance directives, and even visited with a client on my own to prepare a power-of-attorney. On another occasion I met with a client to review his housing court judgment papers and provide advice for next steps, and even did my own case assessment.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at TFC. As an evening student with limited availability to intern, TFC was exactly the type of hands-on experience I was hoping for. Most importantly, it gave me the insight I needed to confirm my decision to pursue Family Law after graduation.
I learned so much and I can’t wait to work with Adam and his amazing team again!
