Summary of Internship
Description of Organization:
At Strasser & Associates there are many tasks that I am required to do on a daily basis. The tasks that I have completed thus far include setting up the database for the organization, writing demand letters, writing memos to the attorneys regarding different cases, looking over employment contracts, review confidential documents, answer telephone calls, destroying confidential files, setting up clientele files, calling the court to set up hearing dates, and faxing over files. For me the most important thing that I have done is reviewing employment contracts because it is necessary for the field that I am pursuing to reivew different contracts and inform the client of the benefits and drawbacks of each contract. Strasser & Associates provides a great learning experience because it deals with all different kinds of law and it exposes you to the different law in the real world. My mentors have helped me out a lot because they always show me and explain to me how to do the different tasks required of me and they get me involved with some of the cases they had to get me accustomed to the general law.
