Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) students are returning to campus with new insights into careers after summer internships.
This summer, WSSU students interned with more than 20 different companies and agencies, including Fortune 500 companies throughout North Carolina.
Brooke Bennett, a junior English major, political science minor from Raleigh, and an aspiring lawyer, gained insight into the law profession during her summer internship with the Restorative Justice Clinic, part of the Campbell University Law School in downtown Raleigh.
“I’ve always wanted an opportunity to job shadow an attorney,” Bennett says. “One of my mentors, Zebedee Talley in career services at WSSU, had connections with an alumna who attends Campbell School of Law. She connected me with Jon Powell, the director of the Restorative Justice Clinic and my internship supervisor.”
Bennett says this experience gave her valuable insight into law school and the legal profession.
