"Working at LawNY® was a fantastic opportunity. I learned so much and met so many incredible people! All of the attorneys and staff were very approachable and willing to teach me what they knew. I really felt like I was a part of the team and contributing in a meaningful way. I was so sad to see the summer end! Not only did I meet so many great people, but I also got to experience many of the different practice areas that LawNY® represents clients in. I am so happy that I got such a varied and educational experience!" -Cassandra Foley, Summer 2016 Intern in Bath 



"LawNY® provided me with a wonderful opportunity this summer. I learned so much from all of the incredible attorneys, paralegals, support staff, and other interns. Most importantly I learned a lot about myself. I confirmed my commitment to public interest work and helping disadvantaged individuals. I received exposure to a wide range of practice areas. I was also able to supplement my work within the office by attending several outreach programs such as Valor Day, and REOC. I know I made the right choice by choosing to intern at LawNY®. "
