American Bar Association

American Bar Association

During my time in Washington, I worked with and on behalf of a team of dynamite lawyers who represented the International Criminal Court, (Guantanamo Bay) and Human Rights Watch, among others.

Through daily collaboration with our Section and Membership directors, my responsibilities included international membership and retention.

I also took the initiative to build a platform dubbed ABAi, short for ABA Interactive, a three-pronged blueprint for a more effective digital presence for the organization globally — the digital strategy combined streaming newswires for attorneys, in-depth diplomatic analysis, and the ability to exchange communication with other international attorneys.

During the end of my term at the organization, I presented my proposal to a team of leaders from across several sections, and set plans in motion to bring future Emory University students to the ABA.

Together, the ABA Section of International Law is comprised of 60+ regional and special interest committees, task forces, and professionals representing the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa, to promote the rule of law worldwide.
