Summer at the Weinberg Center : A Legal Intern's Perspective

My internship at the Weinberg Center was almost halfway over when I had what I would later come to view as the defining experience of the summer. I accepted this internship because the Weinberg Center's mission is in line with my career goal of working as an advocate for victims of domestic violence. I expected the majority of my internship work to be spent researching New York State laws and drafting memos for the attorneys at the office. Instead, however, I had the unique opportunity to meaningfully connect with several of the Weinberg Center's clients. These interactions impacted my entire internship experience, allowing me to see first-hand how all the work I was doing contributed towards giving a voice to vulnerable clients.
