Reflections on an Internship Opportunity: From Gary, Ind. all the way to Washington DC

Presented by Anthony Jones, student

In his presentation, Jones will discuss the most relevant aspects of an internship program that provided him with an opportunity to work with major political figures in our local communities and in the U.S. government.

All the sessions of the research forum are relevant to professional figures in the local community, such as judges, prosecutors, re-entry coordinators, law enforcement officials, potential employers and any other type of professional from local agencies.
