Class of 2011
Extern at MGM and Sony,
Los Angeles, CA
How has your externship affected your desire to practice in that area?
My externship experiences have reaffirmed what law school has taught me – to keep an open mind when it comes to what area of law I might be interested in. When I started law school I was set on being a transactional attorney and drafting contracts all day. Then I was fortunate enough to work at Sony where I stepped out of my comfort zone and actually negotiated the terms that were in the contracts I was drafting. I realized I really enjoyed the interaction and the ability to utilize my business experience and now I have an open mind as to what aspect of the law I will end up practicing.
