Graduating students in the Paralegal Department complete internships with law firms during the last semester of study. This summer, 3 students are interning at New York City law firms and gaining valuable and marketable experience. Qiong is interning at the Bronx office of a Queens law firm which specializes in personal injury cases. She is meeting with clients, researching legal issues, preparing the first drafts of discovery documents, and organizing files for trial. MD's internship is at a Queens law firm which handles real estate and matrimonial cases. He is reviewing and helping to negotiate residential Contracts of Sale and assisting in divorce and child custody matters.
MD works at the firm on Saturdays, which is convenient for his schedule. Abdullah's internship is with a Queens law firm specializing in immigration law. He is learning about the requirements of the Department of Homeland Security for visa and citizenship petitions and meets with clients to present their applications in a thorough, professional manner. These three students work closely with their supervising attorneys and other firm staff members to contribute to their law firms, help their clients, and obtain practical experience in the law, which will bolster their already impressive resumes. They are off to a great start in their chosen field! Visit www.BramsonORT.edu for more info!
