What I wish was different
As for my internship, it was structurally really great. As an undergraduate, I was supervised by both a paralegal and an attorney, and learned a lot of different things and received a lot of different assignments and advice from both of them.
Personally, I would change the scope of what I specialized in. At my internship, I primarily met with DACA recipients. If I were to return to the Legal Aid Society to complete another internship, I would try to have more hands-on experience working directly with immigrants of other statuses, such as VAWA, U-Visa, or T-Visas. All of these filings pertain to immigrants who have been subject to domestic abuse, crime, or trafficking. As someone interested in women's rights and violence prevention, I would have been interested in working more directly with recipients of these statuses. In addition, while I mostly focused on affirmative immigration filings, I wish I was also able to witness more of immigration defense--including court proceedings, removal defense, and the circumstances in detention facilities. However, in only eight-weeks, it is completely understandable that I was not able to witness and do everything, especially considering the magnitude and vastness of immigration law. These "short-comings" are things to think about doing the next-time around. To ensure that you are specializing in what you are interested in, just be vocal about what you want to help with and witness--your supervisor should be receptive and can give you these opportunities.
