In this episode, a military veteran tells the story of his journey to law school, discovering a passion for litigation during law school, interning with the district attorney's office, working for a boutique litigation firm doing admiralty and maritime work, and finally getting recruited into an in-house position in a small company in the energy industry. He explains that he had some misconceptions of being an in-house lawyer when he first started and he learned that being in-house really means serving a lot of different clients and stakeholders within a single organization.
Our guest host this week, Nefertari Elshiekh, is a sophomore at the University of Central Florida Burnett Honors College where she is majoring in economics and international & global studies. Nefertari has interned with Washington Council of Lawyers, the public-interest bar association for the District of Columbia, the New York Times, and Leg Up Legal. She is on the editorial board for the UCF Undergraduate Law Journal and is a researcher with the Institute for Economic Forecasting. She plans to go to law school after college.
