April 4, 2023 New York, New York – Members of the New York County Lawyers Association (NYCLA) proudly announced their 2023 Interns for their annual Judicial Internship program. The program, testament to NYCLA’s leadership role in seeking to promote equal opportunity throughout the legal profession, gives diverse law students the unique opportunity to complement their law school career with a paid summer judicial internship. Since its inception more than 200 law students of color have participated in the program.
NYCLA’s committee on Racial & Ethnic Diversity Committee, led by Kristen Lin and Maurice Sayeh, evaluated submissions, writing samples, interviewed each candidate and made final decision on who would be given one of four internships. We are deeply grateful to the judges who have agreed to host an intern, and to whose mentorship keeps this program successful.
The 2023 Interns placed are:
Michael Hicks, CUNY School of Law will be interning for Stewart Aaron, U.S. Magistrate Judge, SDNY
Giselle Omar, Brooklyn Law School will be interning for Jennifer E. Willis, U.S. Magistrate Judge, SDNY
Anya Patterson, New York Law School will be interning for Barbara Moses, U.S. Magistrate Judge, SDNY
Nahama Paul, John’s University School of Law will be interning for Hon. J. Paul Oetken, U.S. District Judge, SDNY
We wish each of our placements a rewarding and memorable experience.
