How did you get your job?

I saw a posting on LinkedIn and took a chance to apply for the Commercial Real Estate clerking position. I had no experience but expressed my desire to learn the type of law, and the partners offered me the position.

What do/did you like most about your job? 

The law firm does both Commercial Real Estate and School Law. I went in with the thought that I was only going to work with the Commercial Real Estate team. I soon realized the two types of law overlap each other. Through this clerkship, I did not only learn about Commercial Real Estate but also so much regarding law school. The firm’s structure gave me an overall grasp of two types of law, which I learned much about and enjoyed.

How do you think this experience has helped you in your career path? 

I have learned so much about myself and where I want to be as an attorney. This law firm offered more than a clerkship. I am thrilled to be joining their team next year as an Associate.
