Way, Shannon M.

I chose to use my six month SIP quarter to investigate a variety of areas in the field of law. My first area of emphasis was criminal law and our judicial system. I explored this area by working at the United States Attorney's Office in Washington D.C. where I assisted an attorney with trial preparation in the Chronic Offenders Unit. I then transferred to Denver, Colorado where I assisted a team of attorneys in the corporate law firm of Kirkland & Ellis. I performed many menial tasks, but was able to explore the area of corporate law. The last portion of my SIP was devoted to exploring some topic in civil liberties which was having a great impact on our society today. With the knowledge gained from my Civil Liberties course, I realized the Supreme Court was making many controversial decisions involving affirmative action. Consequently, I chose to study this area which ultimately satisfied my curiosity and developed my skills in understanding and analyzing Supreme Court decisions.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
