Employer: Office of District Attorney, Philadelphia, PA

“I’ve been working in law enforcement for years, and I’m excited to take my career to the next level at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. I’m looking forward to making Philadelphia my new home, and transitioning to big city life and the opportunities that come with it.”

Hanna Borsilli '18
Hometown: Stow, OH
Employer: United States District Court, Port Huron, MI

“Every practice area of law requires strong research and writing skills, and helping draft judicial opinions is arguably the best way to improve these skills. Having the opportunity to discuss cases with Judge Cleland and learn how he evaluates briefs and evidence will be an invaluable experience, especially since I want to be a trial attorney after my clerkship ends.”

Kira Chhatwal '18
Hometown: Omaha, NE
Employer: Blakinger Thomas, Lancaster, PA

“I’m excited to be returning to Blakinger Thomas in Lancaster, where I spent my 2L year clerking. Every attorney there was welcoming, and their patience and willingness to mentor me over the three months made me feel like a part of the family. As a general associate, I’m looking forward to gaining experience in the transaction and litigation departments. From learning the legal theories in class to applying them in court at my internships, I couldn’t have asked for a better education over the last three years, because I know that I have the skillset to find a desirable solution.”

Stephen Howard '18
Hometown: Mifflintown, PA
Employer: Van Allen LLC, Harrisburg, PA

“I began law school with a general interest in litigation. After my 1L year, I developed an interest in business advising. While I hadn't imagined practicing in the field of state and local tax law prior to law school, I now realize this field is a perfect fit for me. Dean Gildin's Trial Advocacy course was invaluable to my development as an advocate, and I look forward to arguing issues throughout Pennsylvania courts and serving companies as a strategic partner.”

Employer: Helsell Fetterman, Seattle, WA

“I’m excited to return home to Seattle and once again join Helsell Fetterman, where I worked as a summer associate last year. I’m confident that my education at Dickinson Law has prepared me for this next step: I learned from engaging professors, gained practical experience through a federal judicial internship and a state agency internship, and learned alongside bright classmates with different perspectives. I’m truly grateful for the last three years and equally excited for what’s next!”

Marissa Lawall '18
Hometown: Bethlehem, PA
Employer: Pennsylvania Health Law Project, Harrisburg, PA

“I knew I wanted to work in the health law field, and I was able to take classes that spoke to those interests. I'm looking forward to managing my own case load, working on state-related policy issues, and taking on all of the challenges associated with being a new attorney.”

Joy Lee '18
Hometown: North Wales, PA
Employer: Stevens & Lee, Princeton, NJ

“Internship opportunities offered through Dickinson Law helped me understand more about myself as a practitioner. By interning with a judge, a state agency, and a private law firm, I realized what areas of the law I enjoy and what practice settings I work well in. Hands-on experience in judicial and agency settings also gave me a better appreciation for the legal procedures and entities that I will work with in private practice.”

Triston "Chase" O'Savio '18
Hometown: Glenn Dale, MD
Employer: Middle District Court of Pennsylvania, Scranton, PA

“I look forward to helping draft judicial opinions dealing with federal question and constitutional-related issues because of the profound impact that it will have on society at large. I am interested in becoming a trial and appellate litigator; so, to be able to gain a behind-the-scenes perspective of what a federal judge demands from litigants will be an invaluable experience.”

Rubi Bujanda Rosell '18
Hometown: Phoenix, AZ
Employer: Snell & Wilmer, Phoenix, AZ

“I’m excited to return home to Phoenix and join Snell & Wilmer. As a student and through multiple judicial internships, I learned skills that proved to be invaluable as a summer associate. As I prepare for my first year as an associate, I feel lucky to have received an excellent education at Dickinson Law.”           

Craig Rushmore '18
Hometown: Moorestown, NJ

Tyler Sheridan '18
Hometown: Concord, CA
Employer: Flextronics, Austin, TX

“I never thought that I would have an opportunity to work in an in-house role this soon into my career. I am excited to develop my negotiation and drafting skills through my participation in a range of international transactions and learn how my legal education can help contribute to a faster, more efficient supply chain. The critical thinking skills acquired from my first-year classes combined with the upper-level business law courses during my second and third years have prepared me well to adapt to any learning environment, be confident in my ability to continually ask the right questions, and better understand the corporate business model. Much like the job itself, Austin is an exciting place for me to explore and continue to grow.”
