My name is Lydia McCaleb and I am a senior at Brandeis majoring in Psychology with minors in Legal Studies and Latin American Studies. I am also a captain of the Brandeis Track & Field team. This past summer I was a forensic social work intern at Lawyers For Children, a non-profit in New York City. I worked closely with adolescents in foster care, acquiring resources and advocating on their behalf. I am interested in law, particularly the areas of public-interest and criminal law. I am hoping to work as a paralegal for a couple of years before pursuing law school. I would like to hear about the experiences of alumni working in these fields and learn about the different career paths that may be available for someone interested in going to law school in the near future. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
