Lynn Jackson is proud to welcome Lila Batcheller as our Sioux Falls intern for the summer of 2022. Lila will be interning with Lynn Jackson for 13 weeks this summer.
Lila is fluent in Spanish and will be working alongside attorney, Cesar Juarez, and assisting him with his bilingual practice. Lila attended the Spanish Immersion Program in the Sioux Falls School District during the entirety of elementary school. Her entire elementary school was taught in Spanish, half of the day in middle school was taught in Spanish, and in high school she took a Spanish class every year, along with Spanish Literature courses at Augustana University.
Interning at a law firm was a perfect fit for Lila. “Within the legal field, I have really enjoyed the cross-cultural connections made with Spanish-speaking clients, whether that’s in business law, estate planning or preparing visa applications. Academically, I have gravitated toward interdisciplinary fields, so I love the flexibility and variety that comes with working in the legal field.”
Lila graduated from Lincoln High School in Sioux Falls in 2022 and will be attending Stanford University in the fall. She plans on majoring in Economics with a concentration in behavioral economics.
Outside of her academics, Lila enjoys the outdoors and spending time with her family. “I really enjoy running, biking and being outside. I ran five years of varsity cross country and track for Lincoln High School starting in 8th grade. I also like going to yoga classes. My family has three black labs and one Havanese, so we are big fans of dogs.”
The Firm is proud to offer this opportunity for college students to learn more about the practice of law and working in the legal field.
