i am working as a judicial intern under a circuit court judge, civil division. i came from a criminal background, and have always thought i wanted to do criminal law, so i thought this would be a great opportunity to see a plethora of different legal issues involving non-criminal issues. i would HIGHLY recommend working for a judge at least at some point in your law school career. yes, working at a biglaw firm is amazing, but working under a judge gives you a totally different perspective on the legal world (which many lawyers fail to get without such an experience)
