As my first legal experience opportunity, working at the Juvenile Division has helped me cultivate fundamental skills and benefits such as courtroom professionalism and an expanded network.

What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned at this job?

While observing different juvenile cases, there was an emphasis placed on utilizing a rehabilitative approach. I found this valuable because it showcased a humanized part of the criminal justice system.
