3L Todd Arnold discusses the value of working at the non-profit law firm Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma.
I began working with Legal Aid Services in August of 2012. I was able to obtain a paid internship for both the fall and spring semester of my 3L year. The internship was particularly attractive to me since it requires an immense amount of attention to detail, without an abundance of trial litigation. The transactional side of the legal profession is where I will be spending most of my professional career, and an internship with the Bankruptcy Division was a great start in helping me pursue employment in that direction.
3L Caitlyn Twyman talks about her experiences that led to an interest in immigration law and her recent acceptance to the Department of Justice Attorney General’s Honors Program as a judicial law clerk for the Dallas Immigration Court.
My journey to law school was not one that started when I was eight years old. I was never the girl who stood up on Career Day as a kid and proudly proclaimed that one day I would be an attorney.
Law student Angela Jennings shares her experiences as an intern and extern at the Tulsa County Public Defender’s Office.
In September of 2010, I started working for marginalized and indigent criminal defendants as a student Intern for the Tulsa County Public Defender’s Office. In June of 2012, I had the opportunity to escalate my involvement in the office as an Extern. I am not only gaining valuable experience, but actively assisting in life-changing and policy-changing litigation as well.
I have interviewed over one thousand clients charged with felony crimes under Oklahoma law and participated in numerous preliminary hearings as an Intern.
