City Tech Student Intern Among New York State Assembly’s 2013 Distinguished Intern Reports Award Winners

City Tech student Lourdes J. Cajamarca, who is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Legal Assistant Studies, has been named one of nine 2013 New York State Assembly Distinguished Intern Reports award winners. The nine winners were selected by the Intern Committee chaired by Assemblymember Deborah J. Glick, A.D. 66, who also chairs the Committee on Higher Education.

The New York State Assembly Internship Program has two vital components: the practical educational experience in an Assembly office and the academic component. Each year the Assembly Internship Program has published a volume that honors the best writers in the Program’s challenging academic curriculum. Of the 175 Session interns in 2013, sixteen of their papers were nominated for consideration for publication in this year’s volume and nine were published.

Ms. Cajamarca’s report on Assembly Bill 1056, which would alter the statute of limitation for medical, dental and podiatric malpractice to two years and six months from the time when a person knows or reasonably should have known of the alleged negligent act or omission and knows or reasonably should have known that such negligent act or omission has caused an injury, was written during her service as Session Intern with Assemblymember Helene E. Weinstein, A.D 41.
