Summary of a Legal Internship S.I.P.
When I made the decision to forego a typical S.I.P. in favor of a one unit credit legal internship, I did so for two reasons. First, and also my primary reason, since I had transferred to Kalamazoo College at the beginning of my junior year, I never had the opportunity to participate in a career service quarter. I felt this left me at quite a disadvantage, since many persons had worked for lawyers during career service and were more aware of what the day to day routine of a law office consisted of, whereas I knew virtually nothing. I felt a legal internship would allow me to make a more informed decision of whether or not to attend law school. My second reason was to spend some time reading various books which Sue Steward had selected which she felt would help me when taking the remainder of the Senior Comps in the spring. The attorney I worked for, Harry Contos Jr., dealt primarily with divorce, workmen's compensation, and insurance cases, along with wills.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
