Lessons Learned

Impact on my Career

"One of my favorite memories from my summer there as a law student - and this was after my first year of law school - to me this was the first time I got to work hands-on with important legal issues. I remember Marsha walking in maybe the day or the day after the Miller decisions came down, and the interns had printed the decision. Marsha walks into the room, points at the opinion on my desk and says "Oh yes, this language is from our brief." ... That was the first time that legal writing came alive to me."
