Washington, DC

As a fellow with ACLU-DC, Michael will challenge unconstitutional policing in the District of Columbia through impact litigation and direct representation.  This work will build on his experiences at Harvard Law School, where he interned with the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice, launched an advocacy initiative as chair of the Prison Legal Assistance Project’s Policy Committee, and served as a student attorney with Harvard’s Housing Law Clinic.  Michael graduated Brandeis University in 2012 with a B.A., summa cum laude, in Politics and Economics.  He worked on a political campaign and served as a Work First Fellow between college and law school.  This past year, he clerked for Judge John R. Fisher of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.  Michael is grateful to Sumner Redstone for his generous support of this fellowship.
