Anne Marie Carson
Anne Marie Carson graduated in April 2009 with a double major in International Relations and French.
I just recently graduated as part of the Georgetown Law Class of 2014 as a member of the Georgetown Global Law Scholars. During my time at Georgetown Law I worked on a case for the Innocence Project, competed nationally as part of the Trial Advocacy Division of Barrister's Council, and worked on the Georgetown Journal of International Law, serving as the Symposium Editor during my 3L year. In my capacity as Symposium Editor, I planned an all day event including academics, policymakers, and private practitioners to critically assess international financial regulation in a post-crisis era. As a member of the Georgetown Global Law Scholars, I focused on human trafficking in U.S. government contracts during my 2L year, and served as the Global Law Fellow during my 3L year. Professionally, I spent my 1L summer working in Paris in the area of labor and employment law, while also serving as a research assistant for a member of Georgetown's faculty focusing on international gendered violence. During my 2L summer, I joined Norton Rose Fulbright as a summer associate, where I will return this fall. During the fall of my 3L summer, I interned at the State Department Bureau of Consular Affairs, Office of Overseas Citizen Services.
Grand Valley's International Relations program prepared me for the demanding curriculum of Georgetown Law. Professor Diven's emphasis on proper writing and critical thinking helped me to acclimate to the demands of legal writing. My experiences studying abroad at Grand Valley guided my international legal interests.
