My experience during Chicago Field Studies has deepened my passionate commitment to pursue law. At my internship, I have gained various skills that are transferable to any area of law as well as developed my legal writing. In addition to great exposure, my internship has allowed me to understand what kind of work environment I like and how company culture can play an integral role in how successful you are in a workplace. In addition, my legal field studies course has been phenomenal. I really enjoyed the broad implementation of various types of law. We were able to learn about various legal professions, practice drafting documents, and arguing cases in a mock trial setting. Moreover, the integration of field trips which offered us first hand experiences to various legal workplaces allowed me to make a more informed decision on what kind of law I would like to pursue. I am immensely grateful for this experience.
