Amicus ALJ Intern Information Evening
Mon 24 October 2016, 18:30 – 19:30 IST
The KCL Amicus Chapter welcomes you to an information evening featuring guest Maeve Keenan, a former U.S capital defense intern who spent six months defending death row inmates in Atlanta, Georgia. Maeve will speak to you about her experiences, and more broadly about the work Amicus does. This is your opportunity to learn more about Amicus, and the various opportunities it offers you.
Some quotes from capital defense interns:
"As a child you learn what fairness is when you first suffer unfairness. As an Amicus intern you learn what justice is when you see and fight injustice. This is a life-defining experience".
Maximilian Hardy - New Orleans, Louisiana
"The internship was honestly the best thing I have done and almost every day great memories spring to mind. I learnt so much and the whole Texan experience was amazing, especially being able to create relationships with our clients during our prison visits. I couldn't recommend undertaking an internship highly enough".
Sophie Stannard - Houston, Texas
"It's just opened so many doors. In every interview, the first thing they want to know is 'how was death row?'"
Maeve Keenan - Atlanta, Georgia
