Judicial internships can now be virtual, too!
Brian Wilson, who served as a judicial staff attorney prior to joining BRAWW, is giving back to the community by mentoring judicial interns this summer through the Georgia Latino Law Foundation’s virtual internship program. The program is the brain-child of the organization’s co-founder, Ana Maria Martinez, who saw that the COVID crisis would render many law student’s summer clerkships difficult or impossible to perform.
Martinez and the GLLF have partnered with 26 judges and their interns to create a virtual internship where students create a summer-long capstone project under the supervision of the judge and an attorney in the field, like Brian. During this process, mentors provide advice about structuring lengthy research projects, as well as fulfilling judicial expectations, delivering concise and timely work product, and having positive interactions with other judicial staff. Most importantly, interns develop key relationships with working processionals that will long outlast the summer.
Though the GLLF’s internship program is off and rolling, those looking to support the Foundation are always welcome. More information on the GLLF can be found here: https://www.galatinolawfoundation.org/
