Natalya Rice 3L was a spring extern with the Honorable R. Allen Baddour Jr. ’97, resident superior court judge for Orange and Chatham Counties. Rice knows she wants to work in prosecution after law school.
“An exciting aspect of [working with Judge Baddour] is being able to see casebooks come to life,” says Rice. “It has been such a valuable experience to observe evidence, criminal procedure, civil procedure, contracts and business administration actualize in court. It has helped me conceptualize the connectivity and further ascertain the relationship between law school and practice.”
“Whether they go into criminal or civil law, externs who have worked with me will have experience in litigation, including aspects of motions practice and trial procedure,” says Baddour. “They leave their externship having a good understanding of what judges think is important, which is extremely beneficial as they embark on a career that includes work in the courtroom.”
