Lawyers, I have a law internship in NYC this summer with a firm that works with low-income families pro-bono and the Deaf which is awesome.
But, I don't know much about law. My internship starts June 1st and I don't want to walk in there knowing nothing. What should I read about? I am told that I might be going on mediation sessions and possibly even going alone!
I know the basic outlines of:
Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Title VII
But, I don't know much about laws that have to do with housing, anything specific about NYC, and stuff like that. I think this is to be expected from an Under Graduate, but I don't want to be "average". I don't know anything about court room proceedings or how things work. Any suggestions?
