I am a rising third year student at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law pursuing a certificate in Civil Litigation in addition to the J.D. In law school I focus my classwork on civil litigation, but my main career interest is prosecution. Last summer I worked at the Ohio Attorney General’s Office in their Capital Crimes Division. This past school year I worked part-time at the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office in their Child Abuse and Post Conviction units. This upcoming summer I am very excited to start working at the Chester County District Attorney’s Office. On the legal side, I also recently became very interested in the field of ethics after taking a course on it this spring.
In that magical time before law school, I went to Pitt for undergrad, and graduated cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science and Communication. I was pretty active in politics during college. I worked on a District Attorney race and two different races for Attorney General. However, the thing I loved the most that confirmed my desire to go to law school was mock trial. I did mock trial three out of my four years at Pitt and loved every minute of it. I didn’t do it my sophomore year because I was studying abroad in London and working for the Labour Party, which was an amazing experience.
I am very excited to join a talented team of writers here at Lawyerist. I look forward to contributing everything I can to the site and connecting with lots of new great lawyers, law students and legal professionals. To that end, I invite everyone to follow me on Twitter where I talk about law school things in addition to my other passion: being a nerd.
