Now that we are officially half-way through the summer (time flies!), I think it is a good time to reflect on some of the assignments that I have had so far. As someone who was not entirely sure what practice group I was interested in when I began the summer, having the opportunity to take assignments from different practice groups was something I was really excited about. Bilzin Sumberg has an array of practice groups which makes taking assignments that much more interesting.
My assignments so far have included:
- Conducting research and drafting a memo for Stanley Price in the Land Use & Zoning practice group (yes, Price as in Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod)
- Conducting research and drafting a memo for Mitch Widom in the Litigation practice group
- Reviewing redlines in connection with lease negotiations for Adam Lustig from the Real Estate practice group
- Doing legislative research for Eric Singer in the P3 practice group
- Conducting research and drafting a memo for Adrian Felix in the Litigation practice group in preparation for an upcoming hearing
- Researching current developments in the law for Melissa Pallett-Vasquez and Lori Lustrin, which will be featured in an article/blog post in the Food Court Blog!
While all of the social events and community service events have been tons of fun, my favorite part of the summer has been working on complex and challenging assignments. Not only has this helped me develop relationships with the attorneys I have worked with, but it has helped me determine what my interests are. I look forward to taking on more assignments the remainder of my summer and really honing in on my interests. And yes, I plan on taking on some assignments from the Corporate practice group.
