Colin Pogge, Class of '10
I thoroughly enjoyed and professionally benefited from the U.S. Attorney Internship. Working with seasoned prosecutors who have tried numerous cases is an incredible way to learn trial strategy – from investigation, to verdict, to sentencing. Tony Brown, Chief of the Austin office, takes the time to get to know his interns and offers valuable insight into starting a career with the federal government. The writing seminar that accompanies the internship allows students to work together, a rare opportunity for peer-to-peer collaboration in law school. Professors Susan Klein and Tony Brown have a great dynamic which ensures that class discussions stay lively and interesting. I would recommend the U.S. Attorney Internship to anyone who happens to have a little extra time in their schedule. Not only will the internship strengthen important professional skills such as legal research and writing, it provides a peek into the real-world operation of the justice system that few others will ever experience.
