DON’T FORGET! Today we’ll be joined by guest speaker Alicia N. Washington, Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, which is part of the US Department of Justice. Alicia has served in the US Attorney’s Office’s General Crimes Section; International Narcotics and Money Laundering Section, and currently in the Public Integrity Section. Before attending law school at Columbia, Alicia worked as a paralegal at the Department of Justice for one year. She also previously worked as an associate at a couple of private law firms. If you have time before our class, please review this background information on what the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York does; and this press release about the case Alicia prosecuted with the drugs smuggled in puppies (ugh); and this recent article illustrating the type of work the US Department of Justice does, which includes the recent presidential election. Please be ready to ask questions!
I look forward to SEEING you soon! (because you’ll have your cameras on) 🙂
