College of Law Student Ambassadors 2019

This summer I am working as a judicial intern at the 17th Judicial Circuit with Judge Bernard Bober in the Criminal Division and also working as a research assistant for Florida State Law’s Professor Steve Johnson. If anyone has any questions about either of these experiences, I would be happy to answer them!

As a judicial intern, I have a front row seat to how the court process works beyond what I’ve learned from textbooks. Each day, I have the opportunity to both network with attorneys and other judges and to view various trials.  I also often have the chance to eat lunch with Judge Bober and have one-on-one conversations about each trial and the different developments in the courtroom. As a result of my internship, I have gained a valuable mentor in Judge Bober and I am now more comfortable with the idea of going into litigation.

As a research assistant for Professor Johnson, I am using the legal databases LexisNexis and Westlaw to find articles and cases to help him with his current research on federal tax law. I knew I was interested in tax policy fairly soon after I started at the College of Law.  This role has given me a unique opportunity to build a foundation for my future efforts to break into the tax law field while I prepare to take more advanced tax and business law courses. I am beyond grateful to Professor Johnson for this excellent experience and the chance to work for a nationally recognized scholar on tax law at this stage in my education.
