Review for Center For Youth Development Through Law, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

This was one of the best programs I've participated in and it gave me a better understanding of how our Justice system works. The program also offered me an internship to work at the Oakland City Council back in 2006 which gave me an opportunity to work in a professional environment alongside councilmembers and their aides. I enjoyed the classes that this program offered, and also the scholarship awards in which I also was fortunate to receive when I was in the program. I hope that this program will continue to exist far in the future so that students will have the same opportunities I did.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely helpful and admirable. The staff and instructors were former law school students and they became my role models because they have already accomplish things that I want to do in the future.

Ways to make it better...

my internship was more focused in the court room, not just in an office. I felt restrained someimes even though I enjoyed my internship. I felt like there are way more different areas of laws that the internships can focus on.
