    Prosexperience, responsibility, development. Get in court experience right away and get good practice at drafting briefs

    Life Changing Professional Experience

    Paralegal/Analyst (Former Employee)

    Pros-Surrounded by incredibly talented and passionate people (for the most part)
    -Fulfilling and incredibly interesting work
    -Benefits are superior to the private sector

    Cons-Very political, you need to learn how to play 'the game'
    - I qualified for food stamps as a paralegal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExecutive attitudes need a lot more Morgenthau and a lot less Vance. This is a prosecutor's office. Get tougher.

    Legal bound summer internship

    Legal Bound Summer Intern (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsMany guest speakers from various departments and various roles, including judges, prosecutors, paralegals, law enforcement. Had the opportunity to sit in the courts and observe homicide and juvenile delinquent cases. The program also has a mock trial at the end, and we receive mentorship from a prosecutor. My mentor showed me and my partner examples of opening, questioning, and closing statements from real cases he had done, and helped us construct ours for the mock trial.

    ConsAs a high school intern, you will usually be relegated clerical tasks like filing, copying, collating, etc. However, the people you meet and the in-depth look you get at the legal system more than makes up for that.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
