I had my first work experience at a lawyer office from 13 to 17 April 2015. I’ve chosen to experience this job because later I want to work in the field of justice, specifically as a children’s judge. Of course, I could not have my work experience with a judge because the audiences at the children’s court are private.
As I said before, I’d like to become a children’s judge so this job is related to my future career in the field of justice. A lawyer is to defend people, criminal people, innocent people… They have hundreds of files to be processed each day. They must retain each folder to defend the customer well.
To become a lawyer, you must study six years after your high school degree. I love this job because we never get bored but it’s difficult when we must defend someone we do not like.
It’s awesome to have a great job in which we learn something new every day and we have our own work; of course, we have some constraints, but it’s still fantastic!
