MDRC Hosted Two Law Clerks This Summer

MDRC expresses its thanks to Himaya Seidu Agwedicham and Alexis Pollitto, who served as summer law clerks at MDRC in June.

Agwedicham, a summer associate at White & Case LLP, will begin her third year at Georgetown University Law Center in the fall. She graduated from Princeton University in 2020 with a B.A. in politics and a certificate in African American studies. At Georgetown Law, she is a member of the Business Law Scholars program and has researched corporate governance; environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reform; and federal securities regulations. She has also held legal internships at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of International Affairs and at GiveDirectly.

Pollitto, a summer associate at Sullivan & Cromwell, is a fourth-year evening student at Georgetown Law, involved in student government, the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law, and the Hoya Lawya Runners. During the academic year, she works as a strategy consultant at IBM, with highlights including working with P-TECH interns and helping to establish the nonprofit OneTen.

“We were thrilled to host Himaya and Alexis at MDRC this summer,” said Rose Kob, MDRC Vice President and General Counsel. “They made substantial contributions with their legal research, and our staff appreciated Alexis’s and Himaya’s presentations on two Supreme Court cases with significance to MDRC’s research and policy work. Thank you to Himaya and Alexis for their pro bono service to MDRC!”
