Law Office of Flahive Ogden & Latson

Spring 2016 

Position: Legal Intern
Student: Economics Senior

Flahive, Ogden, and Latson offers an intensive legal internship that can propel a pre-law student into his or her career path, whether or not that will be in the justice system. A typical day for an intern, after a few weeks of learning the system and procedures, includes reading through the legal consolidation emails that give an update of current legal files, sorting through medical files and research in order to create addendums and orders for more medical records, setting up new legal files in the system, entering and checking attorneys’ billing, and ultimately closing and discarding settled legal cases.

Each day looks different depending on what is coming up on the legal calendar. Previously described is a typical day, but on weeks that the litigation team has trials, special projects will be asked of the interns in order to prepare for the hearing, deposition, or trial. For example, when preparing for a conclusive trial the attorney will ask for a preparation of all legal materials that will be used and shown to the court, plaintiff’s attorney, and him/herself. Such may include exhibits, pleadings, discovery, exchange, medical, and/or other miscellaneous documents. In preparing these folders and binders the intern will learn and begin to recognize legal procedures and formalities.  

By working in a professional office environment, the internship also offers the experience and opportunity to work as a team. The whole office works together toward the common goal of winning all cases for our clients and insurance carriers. From the briefers, typists, to the attorneys of litigation, contested case hearings, and benefit review conferences, the office presents a delightful demeanor and cohesive environment.
