The Laundry List

July 11th, 2013 baschi14

First off I wanted to apologize for being away for so long. I’ve been super busy at work and also just got back from a vacation in the middle of Jersey where there was no cell phone or internet service. Here is a snap shot of everything I’ve done in the past 2 weeks

  • Sunday June 30th: I explored the city with a friend. We went to China town had some amazing (the best I’ve ever had) chinese food and then proceeded to walk 3 miles around Soho where we ended at the Empire State Building. Unfortunately there was zero visability as we reached the 102nd floor because it decided to start raining, but it was still so cool to be at the top and after a little while the clouds started to move so we caught a glimpse of the city below. What an cool view, I felt like I was on top of the world and the city looked like an ant village. You really get a feel for the massive size and wonder of New York City from the top. On our walk over to the Empire State Building we stopped at George Town Cupcakes. These were honestly the best cupcakes I’ve ever had! When it comes to cupcakes I know what I like and boy was this place out of this world! The store was so cute and their gluten free cupcake was amazing! At the end of the night we went to a great mexican place in Brooklyn under the bridge and it was so yummy too! It was a cute little mom and pop shop. Not only as the food great but the people were so nice as well.

  • July 4th week: This was my last week working for the motions department. I learned so much about the legal process in this department and it was sad to leave. I worked on a few more difficult motions during the week and when Wednesday hit, I was off to my Aunt and Uncle house in New Jersey for the rest of the week. My family from Boston came down and it was so great to see them and spend time with them as well. I really missed them! We had a huge family BBQ with all my little cousins. It was so fun to be around little kids and to spend some quality time with family. I also didn’t stop eating for 4 days, making the vacation that much better!

This week I started working for the Affirmative Litigation department of the law office. This is a new experience, which deals with more of trial prep phases. A lot of the work this department does is reviewing medical files of plaintiffs and putting together defenses based on these findings. They also deal with the bio-mechanical department, which consists of scientists dedicated to running equations that show if certain injuries could actually occur in the accident. The other interns and I will be attending one of these session later on in July. The rest July is sure to be a busy month we have a few field trips to bigger trial law firms, a dinner with the partners, and we are going to witness a trial as well. I’m so excited for all of this! I also can’t believe I am half way through my internship and I only have a month left. It is so hard to believe!
