    Former Employee - Investigative Intern in Bronx, NY

    I worked at Legal Aid Society as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Learned a lot about the law, had the nicest supervisor, was able to sit in on a lot of ongoing cases in the courthouse, attorneys were very nice

    Cons

    Unpaid, a lot of travel, training was long and extensive as well as slightly boring, after it was over that was it.
