A great experience I had during my internship was connecting with attorneys who shared their process of becoming a lawyer. Through fostering these relationships and receiving advice from professionals with many different educational and personal backgrounds, it allowed me to genuinely solidify my interest and passion for becoming a lawyer.

For over a decade Chamberlain Hrdlicka has hired Cristo Rey interns, so we have seen the value the students bring at our firm. The Cristo Rey internship program is a win-win as the students benefit from being in a work environment and our firm benefits from the work done by the students and giving back to our community.
