How did you get your job? 

I responded to an email sent from a current ADA on the Law Review at St. Mary’s stating that the office was hiring a Law Clerk in their Civil Special Victims Division.

What do/did you like most about your job? 

I like that it is remote for the sake of still being in school and the convenience of just logging in to work instead of driving to the office.  I also like that the expectations in our office are very clear. Everyone is part of a chain, knows what needs to be done, and is diligent to do it.

Did your job change in a virtual workplace?  How did you interact with your co-workers?

It was strange at first—it is challenging when you can’t meet people organically in the office and get to know them face-to-face.  Weekly and Monthly regular zoom meetings helped me gain that workplace relationship with their team members and grow to get to know all of them individually.
