Undergrad: Grand Valley State University


“I had a fabulous internshipmy 1L summer. I worked for a state trial court judge. I was in the courtroom every day, in addition to doing legal research. I was able to draft court orders and opinions, and respond to prisoner petitions for relief from judgment. I met a lot of attorneys and saw several trials, both civil and criminal. I also was able to see pleadings, parole violation hearings, and motions. The career development office has been very helpful when I have questions. I received my 2L summer internship through an OCI, and the judge with whom I interviewed with was an NDLS grad. I have also met alumni for lunch, and they are always very helpful and willing to meet with an NDLS student.”
