At the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law
Help Cardozo Law students help the underserved.
"My experience at the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office was fantastic. In my second week, I was asked to respond to a motion and write a supporting memo. Within my first month, I had responded to two motions, sat in on interviews, conducted a portion of a witness interview, prepared and redacted discovery, and observed criminal court, as well as a few trials. The DA’s office did a great of giving me real responsibility and encouraged me to observe trials when I had free time. I walked away with two writing samples—and learned a great deal. The experience was engaging, rewarding, and interesting."
On March 14, 2018, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law hosted its 26th Annual Public Service Auction.
All of the proceeds of this student-led event benefited nonprofit organizations and government entities across the country by supporting first- and second-year student interns within their organizations. These internships provided crucial legal assistance to scores of underserved communities while also providing incredible opportunities for Cardozo students to gain practical, meaningful experience.
In 2018, over 100 nonprofits and government agencies, from The Legal Aid Society to the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office to the American Civil Liberties Union to The Children's Law Center, benefited from the 178 student interns that were provided stipends, in part from the funds raised from the auction.
