Fairfield school of law

I was always interested in legal studies. The facts and theories, i wanted to study them in details so i choose to be a law student and i am about to finish my first year. And i love researching about legal topic and studying them in detail like small details of it so i applied for an internship and required to register here but i am expecting to have a great experience her and as a law student both. Being a law student is like a responsibility that what we are studying, we should make others aware about the legal system of our country for there benefits. As people are afraid of legal system as they don't know much about it.
