Three UCC students have just completed work placement in the New York State Assembly in Albany, New York. Lisa Keohane, Pádraig Mac Consaidínand Aoife Wilson are students of UCC’s BSc Government degree programme. As part of their third year studies, they undertook work placement in New York which provided them with an opportunity to participate in US state government and observe the legislative process first-hand. Students were assigned to the offices of individual Assembly Members where work duties included responding to constituent mail, conducting research, engaging in statistical analysis, reporting on committee meetings and meeting with lobby groups. All students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend the work placement to other students.
