Internship Spotlight

Success story Kali Driscoll smiling.
I am a legal intern at Foley & Foley Law Office in Watertown, SD. What attracted me to this internship was how it was specifically designed to provide a variety of exposure to different areas and types of practice. I knew this internship would expose me to a vast amount of knowledge and help me obtain valuable practical skills in a wide variety of areas. Mr. Foley served as a Judge for the Third Judicial Circuit in South Dakota and has experience on both sides of the courtroom. To be able to learn from a practicing attorney and former judge is incredible.
