1L Elective: Jumpstarting a Career

“Professor Gráinne de Búrca brought in great guest speakers and gave us a chance to see what international law practice could look like.”

Real-World Research Opportunities

“I was awarded a Ford Foundation Public Interest Fellowship to conduct field and desk research in São Paolo on Haitian migration to Brazil during my 1L summer. In October 2013, I testified about those violations before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.”

2L Highlight: Hands-On Experience

“As part of the Children's Rights Clinic, I worked at The Door, a community center that provides services for young people. I helped provide immigration legal aid to young people who’ve been abused, abandoned, or neglected.”

Inspiring Moment

"I had the chance to give a BALSA award to Judge Raymond Lohier ’91 of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which was especially meaningful to me because of our shared Haitian descent. He interviewed me for the AnBryce scholarship."
