Lane '11 Makes Mark Fighting Discrimination Against Arab-American Community

Jordan Lane never expected to have tea with the Syrian ambassador to the United States or win “best brief” in a moot court competition, but those were just two of the opportunities made possible by her summer internship at the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.

Lane, now a second-year law student, was first introduced to the Washington D.C.-based grassroots civil rights organization through the Law School’s Winter Pro Bono Program. She spent a week working there over winter break, and was encouraged to seek one of the four summer intern slots offered by the ADC, which hundreds of law students apply for each year.
