2022 GLLF VJIP Research Repository

Letter of Introduction

The Georgia Latino Law Foundation (GLLF)’s Judicial Internship Program was created to provide a meaningful experience for law students whose summer plans were disrupted by the new challenges COVID-19 posed in the legal field. This 2022 Summer was the first time the Judicial Internship Program was able to have in-person as well as hybrid work options for judicial interns to gain meaningful experience by connecting and engaging with the legal community. The Georgia Latino Law Foundation’s Judicial Internship Program allowed participants to work for judges and other respected legal professionals, both in-person and on-line through a variety of assignments, tasks, and learning opportunities. 

In addition to pairing law students with judges and attorney mentors, the program also requires interns to create a final capstone project on a legal issue interesting to them by conducting research, writing, and thoughtful legal analysis. Thanks to the hard work of our diverse group of students from law schools across the Country, we have been able to gather a vast research repository of varying topics. Whether it be proposals and legal insights into the newly ratified Name, Image and Likeness laws or comparing the differences between State and Federal Computer criminal offenses, The Georgia Latino Law Foundation’s Judicial Internship Program allowed participants to create projects that can be referred to by Judges, attorneys, and the general public to learn more about issues they see within the law.

The Georgia Latino Law Foundation’s Judicial Internship Program would not have been possible without the hard work and continuous support of the GLLF committee as well as the support from judges and legal professionals throughout the community. We also provide a special thanks to the Georgia State College of Law Library staff for allowing this collection of research to be stored in their legal database. The Georgia Latino Law Foundation greatly appreciates all the judicial interns that worked diligently to create these projects, engage with the legal community, and make this program a success for the third year in a row.
