It’s no secret that securing a government internship can be difficult – even the most talented people often don’t make the cut. Unless, they are presented with a unique opportunity like second-year FAMU law student Ashley Wilson.
Wilson, a Jamaica-native, landed one of the most-difficult to acquire government internships when she was hired for the Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAGs) at the Naval Academy this summer in Annapolis, Maryland.
For eight weeks, she was tasked with assisting the Navy JAGs in all legal research necessary for assignments. As the only intern in the Naval Academy, Wilson learned how to handle all aspects of law from a military perspective including wills, trusts, divorces, contracts, and even criminal cases.
