We are very pleased to announce that Sarah Mazzochi and Randa Zakhour will be joining us this summer as fellows. Their biographies are as follows:

While in law school, Sarah serves as the current President of Law Students for Reproductive Justice, Vice President of the American Civil Liberties Union and is a board member for the American Constitution Society. During the Spring semester alone, the ACLU has started work on a prisoner’s rights handbook, brought a debate on the Second Amendment to campus, sponsored a “movie night” with the law school deans on civil liberty issues, brought a state representative to address probation reform in Rhode Island and had an immigration law attorney speak to the student body. She also recently competed in the school wide 1L Moot Court Competition where she was a semifinalist.
