JANUARY 19, 2009 - Schwartz Perry & Heller'S SPRING 2009 LEGAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
On January 19, 2009, our Spring 2009 Legal Internship Program commenced.
We are privileged to have eight interns participate in the program which
continues through May 8, 2009. The participants will be actively involved
in the drafting of complaints, performing legal research, responding to
discovery, writing for the firm’s employment law blog and taking
part in initial client meetings.
The Spring 2009 interns came from five law schools throughout the New York
Metropolitan area, including New Jersey (Benjamin N. Cardozo School of
Law, Brooklyn Law School, New York Law School, Seton Hall University School
of Law and Touro Law Center). Each attorney at Schwartz Perry & Heller LLP takes
great pride in mentoring and nurturing these law students throughout the
course of their internship. The firm’s Legal Internship Program
always provides a rewarding experience for both the interns and our attorneys.
The firm’s Legal Internship Program was initially developed as a
Summer program more than 10 years ago under the direction of Mr. Schwartz,
at the request of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. The initial programs
were so successful that the firm initiated on-going legal internship programs
throughout the academic year as well.
