Four of the students were placed with 430th District Judge Israel Ramon Jr and one student was placed with Criminal District Attorney Ricardo Rodriguez Jr. The students spent the morning with both officials, receiving one on one time where they could ask questions and inquire about the day to day operations of each office. They took a tour of the departments and met with other staff members who explained the purpose of the job, their responsibilities and how their job helps the department function.
