"The Justice John Paul Stevens Public Interest Fellowship allowed me to spend my first summer at Berkeley Law serving as an intern with the Office of the President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). It would be difficult to overstate how important this opportunity was for my professional development and my personal interests.
"After graduation and a year working in Sierra Leone, I returned to the ICTY to serve as a legal officer in the Appeals Chamber, where I supported judges in the drafting of judgements in war crimes cases involving senior Serbian and Croatian political and military officials.
"After my work with the ICTY, I transferred to the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo, where I monitored, reported on, and facilitated rule of law issues. My career with the United Nations was, undoubtedly, facilitated by the opportunity provided through my initial internship with the ICTY.
"Thank you to all supporters of the Stevens Fellowship Program."
