Give us a brief summary of your experience?

As a Judicial Intern for the Middlesex County Courthouse, I got to work under The Honorable Judge Thomas McCloskey. I was able to shadow his law clerk, sit in on hearings and trials, and was given the opportunity to conduct my own legal research.

How did this experience impact you academically?

To be a Judicial Intern as an undergraduate student is an immense honor. Since I do not have any legal qualifications or law school experience under my belt yet, I was trusted to put forth my best effort while working alongside extremely intelligent individuals. This experience will set me years ahead of my law school classmates.

"I was able to make connections with them and was able to secure support from them for any help I will need in the future."

How will this experience impact your career goals?

In this position, I got to network with countless Judges and Attorneys in my home state of New Jersey. I was able to make connections with them and was able to secure support from them for any help I will need in the future.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

I made several career appointments to help me navigate accepting my internship, sending letters, emails, etc. All the career counselors were so patient and knowledgeable. I want to specifically thank Katie Wysocki for all her help through my internship search.
