My Summer Break After 2L

Law school has been an amazing journey!

Summer. The season of endless iced caramel macchiatos and sunny skies. After the whirlwind of 2L, I was very excited to start my summer break.

This past summer, I was able to intern with the Travelers Companies, Inc. as a summer associate in their worker’s compensation and general liability department. I came into law school wanting to practice in general liability, so this was a great opportunity to get more hands-on experience and further my understanding of the application of the law in everyday practice. I am a firm believer that there is no better way to perfect your craft than through real-world experiences.

I find the academic year to be rigorous, leaving little room to find downtime. But summer break is a completely different story— something that I will miss after graduation. I was able to spend time with family and friends and really take the time to forget (almost) about the pressures that come with law school. My partner and I are in a long-distance relationship—totally doable in law school—so, I found summer to be a great opportunity to spend more time with him too. Overall, my summer break was an amazing time to recharge as I prepared to go into my last year of law school.
