Boston College Law

During the summer of my sophomore year, I had the opportunity to intern at the 10th Judicial Circuit’s public defenders office which is located about 30 minutes south of Lakeland. It was a paid internship where I got to work with the PD’s, interview potential clients in the office and in jail, and get some hands on experience with criminal law. It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The advantage of going through a more personalized school like FSC is that your professors get to know you well enough to truly help you find what's best for you. Dr. Anderson reviewed an unimaginable amount of drafts of my personal statement, talked through my list of law schools, and helped me weigh the various considerations that go into making such an important investment in myself.
