Intern at the Appellate Division of the DA's office in Boston, where I'll be writing briefs (yay...). I've been told that I will get to spend a significant amount of time watching cases if I want, which means I may be sitting a few dozen feet away from the alleged Craigslist Killer. Anyone want me to say something to him for them?
Appellate divison...ah hell, why?!
I got put in Narcotics.
Because I'll actually be writing briefs that are filed in court, with the possibility of arguing them down the line. There are something like 55 interns working in the regular division, so I feared it may have been kind of a shitshow. There are too many people there for them all to be doing significant legal work. The Appellate Division has 6 interns, I believe, and I'll get to show potential employers for my 2L summer job writing samples that were filed in the Boston court. I also want to get in as much legal writing experience as possible.
