While the summer isn’t quite over, we do have to say goodbye to our 2023 Summer Intern Ethan Cornell. Although Ethan only joined us for the month of July, he made positive contributions to our team and brought a unique perspective to our work. We are thankful for the ways Ethan helped move our mission forward this summer. Thank you, Ethan!
We asked Ethan to share a bit about himself and his future plans.
My name is Ethan Cornell. I am a rising senior at Wofford College located in Spartanburg, South Carolina. I am an International Affairs and Environmental Studies double major on a Pre-Law track. This summer, I have had the opportunity to work with TFAS (The Fund for American Studies) in Washington, D.C. in which I have been able to participate in internships, lectures, classes, and many other amazing opportunities such as this one thanks to the Washington Council of Lawyers. By having prior experience working for two other law firms and judges, I was very much looking forward to seeing a different side of the legal system to learn how organizations such as these can bring new and improved levels of justice and equality in the legal field. Looking into the future, I am not quite sure of what kind of law I want to specifically go into, but hopefully opportunities such as these and my time in law school after graduation will bring some direction of what avenues I want to go down for my professional career. My current interests consist of nursing home negligence, environmental and energy law/policy, and supply chain sustainability.
