Legal Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 Denver, CO
“This was an amazing experience. I got experience both as a policy researcher and writer as well as doing legal research that I previously had very little experience in. On top of that, every week the interns got an opportunity to meet highly talented individuals in the legal world ranging from the general counsel of Coors Brewing Co to federal and CO Supreme Court judges. Almost more valuable than any of that though was the ability to work side by side with talented young law students and both get an inside look on what the future holds as well as a chance to tap into the young professional network of Denver. ”
