Ashley Lockett is our 2024 Spring Intern

Ashley Lockett will be joining Jones Health Law as our 2024 Spring Intern. Currently, she is a 2L at Florida International University.

Internships at Jones Health Law are designed to give our interns the tools that they will need to successfully practice law once they graduate from law school.

Here are a few things that you should know about Ashley:

Why did you decide to go to Law School?

My interest in law school began while I was earning my bachelor’s degree in psychology and taking a class that discussed the intersecting concepts between psychology and the law. I decided to attend law school for two reasons. One is that the law plays an important role in almost every aspect of our lives and being able to understand the law is invaluable. The second reason is that I want to use my law degree to serve marginalized and underrepresented communities, no matter which field of law I pursue.


What interests you about Health Law?

With the health field constantly expanding and changing as new technology is presented and research reveals new information, I believe it presents attorneys with an interesting challenge. It is not only exciting to work in health law, but it is also fulfilling to be able to work alongside the healthcare industry in a different capacity.


What are you hoping to gain from this internship?

I hope to improve my research and writing skills so that I am creating quality work but with efficiency. Considering health law is a broad field, I also hope to learn more about the different areas of it and perhaps find my niche.

 

Tell me something interesting about yourself.

Some of my current hobbies include reading, cooking, and volleyball. In the future, I would love to have my own greenhouse and be a beekeeper on the side.

Welcome to the Jones Health Law Team, Ashley. We are happy to have  you with us!

Where are you from?

I am originally from Colombia.

When did you move to America?

I moved to the United States full time in 2004.

Why did you decide to go to Law School?

I started my law school journey back in Colombia. After many years of working in the legal field as a paralegal it felt like a natural next step to pursue my law degree here in the US.

What interests you about Health Law?

I find Health Law an interesting area of the law because it is ever evolving.

What are you hoping to gain from this internship?

Health Law is a very niche and specialized area of law so I am excited to have the opportunity to gain direct exposure and knowledge from an expert in the field.
