#SLULAWSummer - Rising 2L Enrique Miranda

July 17, 2015

 

By Enrique Miranda

I am a rising 2L pursuing my J.D. with a concentration in health law at SLU LAW and I'm originally from Atlanta, Ga.  Prior to attending SLU LAW, I received my undergraduate degree from Winthrop University in South Carolina with a degree in business administration with a concentration in finance.

After undergrad before pursing law school, I took a year and half off before law school. During that year, I played soccer then transitioned into working for Allstate Insurance and North Atlanta Primary Care’s business department. I choose to attend SLU because of ranking No. 1 in health law nationally.

I am currently in a summer internship program at Caleres, Inc., a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange. I was lucky to get my position through the Association of Corporate Counsel of St. Louis. My decision to take the position at Caleres was to get corporate experience at a large publicly traded company. The majority of “in house” departments do not hire straight out of law school, therefore this was a great opportunity for me to get this experience and determine if this type of work is an avenue I would like to pursue during my career. 

At Caleres, I have had the opportunity to do a variety of legal work. Each attorney in the department has a different specialty and they have given me a number of assignments throughout the summer. Some of the assignments I have worked on include preparing corporate governance documents, working on the rebranding and name change of the company from Brown Shoe Company to Caleres and responding to employment dispute cases, and a number of other projects.

Along with the different assignments I have worked on, I have also been able to meet clients, go to a mediation in Nashville, and attend the annual shareholder meeting for Caleres.

I am wrapping up my internship over the next two weeks. This summer has flown by and I have had the opportunity to learn and experience so much at Caleres. I have really enjoyed my time here and am eager to begin the next school year with this knowledge and experience from this summer.
