Schwartz Perry & Heller'S 2007 SUMMER LEGAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM CONCLUDES WITH RESOUNDING SUCCESS
AUGUST 10, 2007
During the Summer of 2007, Schwartz Perry & Heller LLP invited 19 accomplished second- and third-year law students from several New York-area law schools to participate in its highly recognized legal internship program, which has successfully existed for more than 10 years (Brooklyn Law School, City University of New York School of Law, Fordham University School of Law, Hofstra University School of Law, New York Law School and St. John's University School of Law). The first session commenced on May 21, 2007, which continued through June 29, 2007. The second session commenced on July 2, 2007 and concluded on August 10, 2007.
During the course of their internship, the first session law students had tremendous exposure to a major arbitration proceeding. Arrangements were made to have each intern attend proceedings and each was given an opportunity to participate in the research with respect to the concluding post-arbitration material.
All of the Sumer 2007 legal interns were given exposure to drafting complaints, performing legal research on a variety of substantive and procedural law issues, ongoing involvement in all aspects of employment litigation, motion practice, client intake meetings, third-party conducted mediations, negotiation preparations and other facets of our very active employment law litigation practice.
Lasting friendships were created, knowledge and experiences were shared and the entire class of interns expressed their appreciation for the experiences in which they participated and the hands-on contact they obtained working in an active employment law practice. We at Schwartz Perry & Heller LLP benefitted from the experience as well, as we always do.
