Jennifer Roth - Federal Defender, Georgia

My experience at this internship has been incredible and unforgettable.  I assisted an attorney with research for her oral argument in front of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and then observed the argument.  I was then able to go to the state prison to meet with that client, who is currently on Georgia's death row, and will continue those visits throughout the summer.  Lastly, I did research on claims of ineffective assistance of trial counsel and jury misconduct on another case in preparation for a Federal District Court Brief that I will help draft, and have had the opportunity to meet with that client on death row.
