"I applied to intern at NCTE because I plan to focus my legal career on trans rights advocacy, and I wanted to learn more about the policy side of things. My semester as a legal intern at NCTE was one of the most exciting, engaging and informative experiences I have had throughout law school. Because of the team's focus on ensuring I got the most out of my experience I was able to attend meetings with several federal agencies and partnering advocacy organizations, and sit in on conference calls regarding trans rights advocacy at the local, state and federal level. Because of NCTE's comprehensive approach to trans equality I had the opportunity to advance my legal research and writing skills through a variety of formats: legal briefs and memoranda, policy advocacy letters, blog posts, and federal regulation comment drafting. Besides the incredible practical learning experience, the most rewarding aspect of my internship was not just feeling like I was genuinely a part of the national movement for trans equality, but actually being able to make meaningful contributions to its progress."
