Last week I began an internship with the OsborneFletcher family law firm in Lexington, KY. The firm specializes in local family law, representing clients with nuptial, custodial and child care related conflicts. The firm has agreed to take me in for a month, throughout July I will likely be versed in the firm’s filing systems, the courthouse’s filing system and courtroom antics/attorney jargon. I look forward to this incredible opportunity to explore and envelopment myself in the legal world.
Naturally, my first tasks have proven to be rather mundane. Filing case information, organization of filing room, labeling of files. Lots of files. Luckily, my advisors and fellow office dwellers are incredibly accommodating and friendly. This has made my grunt work far less agonizing. I understand the need for these humbling tasks and I eagerly anticipate my first appearance in court.
