Shea Hazel joins the Washington Council of Lawyers as our virtual intern this fall. Shea is from Boston, Massachusetts, and will proudly graduate UMass Law in May 2021. She is a UMass Law Public Interest Law Fellow, Advisor to the Veterans Law Association, Vice President of the International Law Students Association, and a member of this year’s Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition team.
Shea serves in the United States Air Force Reserve in Washington, D.C. She has degrees in Russian, Financial Management, Legal Studies, Organizational Transformation, and Intelligence and Technology.
As an active member of the Emerging Professionals in the Intelligence Community Committee and the Washington Council of Lawyers, she is committed to public service and helping those in need. She interned with the Social Security Administration’s Office of General Counsel at the John F. Kennedy Federal Building in Boston, MA, volunteers with Hospice, and is also an Election Protection Hotline Worker this year. She reflected, “Voting is a right we must not take for granted. Voting is the essence of a democratic nation.”
Last spring, she was selected for the UMass Law Study Abroad where she pursued her love of international law at the University of Limerick School of Law in Limerick, Ireland. She was elected to the UL International Society Committee and believes in the power of collaboration and diversity. Now, she is exploring a Ph.D. in International Criminal Law.
Shea is humbled for the opportunity to serve as the Washington Council of Lawyer’s Legal Intern and we are thrilled to have her!
And, in honor of Congressman Lewis, and the times we live in, Shea wants to take a moment to remind us to “Cause Trouble. Cause Good Trouble. Cause Necessary Trouble.”
