MY LAW SCHOOL JOURNEY

My name is Fumnanya Ekhator and I am currently a 2L at a top ten Ivy League law school. Before law school I worked in the White House Office of Public Engagement under the Obama administration, and then went on to work as a paralegal in DC Big Law. Following my OneL summer, I interned for the Philadelphia office of the Pennsylvania Innocence Project, and recently secured a 2L summer associate position at a top two law firm in Philadelphia. I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2013.
