“I’m exactly halfway through my internship at ICTY in the OTP, and I’m really enjoying the work so far…Most of my tasks have revolved around witness preparation–drafting short motions, proofing witnesses, and preparing my attorneys for missions to interview potential witnesses. The attorneys on my team, which is quite a large one compared to those working on other cases, are absolutely wonderful–kind and happy to mentor us patiently, and just great supervisors all around. I’ve also learned a great deal about different styles of lawyering from being at an institution with so many attorneys from completely different legal backgrounds.”
