Welcoming Our Summer Interns

by CBJC Staff June 25, 2014

The City Bar Justice Center is pleased to be hosting ten interns this summer. Our interns will all be working on different projects at the CBJC, including the Veterans Assistance Project, the Elderlaw/Cancer Advocacy Project, the Immigrant Women and Children Project, the Legal Clinic for the Homeless, and more. The work of each intern will vary from project to project; some will be writing and researching, while others will work directly with clients.

The CBJC summer interns arrived with diverse interests in justice that connect to our organization’s mission of providing legal services to low-income clients. Kelly Burnett, a rising 2L at CUNY Law School from Buffalo, NY, was drawn to work with the Immigrant Women and Children Project  because she is passionate about domestic violence prevention as well as the issues surrounding human trafficking. Matthew Fields, another CUNY Law School student from Oceanside, NY, hopes to gain experience working with clients in the Veterans Assistance Project. His work with veterans this summer will advance his career goal of becoming a member of the military Judge Advocate General’s Corps.

With a busy summer ahead and many clients to serve, we are thrilled to welcome these budding professionals to our organization.
