What I want to get out of law school is a law license so I can become a prosecutor. Before school I had worked full-time as a civilian police investigator for a few years examining allegations of misconduct within the NYPD. At the office I noticed that the people who made the most meaningful impact in the office were the attorneys, since they had the most familiarity and access with the judges who ruled on issues of police accountability. To earn this law license, I not only am attending classes but also pursuing externships that will inform my practice.
