Job Shadow – Hon. Daniel A. Flores

The 1L Open Door Shadowing program is a valuable opportunity for students to get a taste of what it really feels like to work in a legal environment of their interest. Opening the door to first-year students can provide them with the type of clarity needed to make that important decision about where law students should focus their efforts during the critical summer between 2nd and 3rd year. I congratulate JDC in helping law students balance the adages of ‘fools rush in’ and ‘don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.’

Job Shadow – Jennifer Richardson, JD Candidate 2021

I am a first-year law student, a first-generation professional, and this program allowed me to see the legal profession outside of law school. Conversing with practicing attorneys that are not my professors bolstered my confidence in the classroom. I am tremendously grateful to the program because it gave life and context to the material that I’m learning in class.
