My association with the Adams Center for Law and Society afforded me one of the greatest opportunities I’ve had as a student at Susquehanna University. During the summer prior to my senior year at SU, the Adams Center sponsored a nearly full-time internship position I held at the Snyder County District Attorney’s Office.

My internship experiences have added hands-on experience that advances the theoretical aspects of law that I have learned in the classroom. Finding and interpreting case law, discussing orders and opinions with the judges and law clerks, and collaborating with local attorneys is part of my typical day at court.

Over the course of the summer, I learned a great deal about the practical consequences of Pennsylvania’s sentencing policies and about procedures associated with crime and punishment in the U.S. more generally.

Both of the opportunities the Adams Center provided me have broadened my interests in criminal justice and allowed me to apply course material from my sociology major to real-world situations.
