Student Post - Alexis Crittenden
Sydney, Australia is a beautiful place and there are so many places to visit and things to do in such a short period of time. I enjoyed all of our class visits and touristy things we did. My favorite adventure during our time in Australia was at the U.S. Consulate. Although it was a hassle trying to get through security, the speakers were great and very informative and knowledgeable in their respective fields. I took a lot away from that visit. Someone from the IRS, FBI, the Consulate General, and a diplomat ICE officer. The visit just opened my eyes even further into the many different fields you could possibly go into after law school. An officer from the IRS was the most entertaining and interesting speaker. When you think about the IRS you don't usually think about organized crime and them having a hand in certain criminal investigations. All the speakers were very engaging and encouraged me to learn more about their fields and look into maybe joining the foreign service. We visited a lot of various offices and it's just so fascinating the areas of study and things they do concerning fraud and white collar crime.
