I interned for a federal judge. I was allowed to observe all hearings that were going on when I was present, and spent a little bit of social time with the judge. The work was mostly reading pleadings and making notes for the judge so that he didn't have to read every word. I did do a research project that was used in an opinion the judge published. Out of the internship, I scored an interview with another federal judge for a clerkship and a job interview with a botique firm.
