Chicago Office Extern Testimony, 2012
As a legal extern for FLAP, I felt that the work I did was meaningful as it certainly made a difference in people’s lives. You can definitely see the fruit of your labor put to good use. I drafted memoranda of law, a complaint, demand letters, and damage calculations among other things. Each assignment was a necessary step in the case litigation process and I was fortunate to take part in that process. I saw one of my cases go through settlement, and it was a rewarding experience to see our clients get what was owed to them.
Our clients work very long hours, usually with no benefits, and have very little time for themselves and their families. At the very least they should get the wages they earned. It was a pleasure to help.
