Client interaction

 Okay so this one is going to be super brief because I'm not allowed to say that much about it, but Wednesday my mentor let me sit in on a client interview which was super cool. Basically what my mentor does is as the process goes on (and it can be a LONG process from the day someone is arrested to the day the case is tried or dismissed, etc.) my mentor makes sure to keep in contact with his clients. So I got to sit in on an interview where my mentor was checking up to make sure everything was going smoothly with one of his clients.

I really appreciated this client letting me do this--I had read their discovery material before they came in, so I had a general idea of what sort of legal trouble they were facing, and I got to see behind the scenes of the communications that are normally restricted to the lawyer and their client. I am a total people person, so I'm super happy that I got to sit in on one of these and see what exactly a lawyer has to do in terms of keeping up contact with their client. It's a lot more than just ripping apart the opposing side in court-my mentor actually takes time to get to know his clients and ensure that they are okay as the process goes along. 

Okay I won't say anymore cause I can't give details, but this was definitely a highlight of the project.
