Levin Center announces interns for summer program with congressional committee offices
DETROIT – The Levin Center at Wayne State University Law School has selected five law students to serve as legal interns in congressional committee offices in Washington, D.C. this summer.
Due to COVID-19, the Wayne Law students will work remotely until congressional offices reopen.
Internships recipients are:
- Marie Carp – Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (Sen. Gary Peters, D-MI)
- Nicholas Jakymowych – House Committee on Energy and Commerce/Oversight Subcommittee (Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-KY)
- Katelyn Maddock – House Committee on Oversight and Reform/Subcommittee on the Environment (Rep. Harley Rouda, D-CA)
- Steven Nelson – Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (Sen. Tom Carper, D-DE)
- Jacob Stropes – Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (Sen. Gary Peters, D-MI)
Each position involves work with congressional staff from both parties and a bipartisan approach to oversight. Students work under the supervision of an experienced attorney who is engaged in conducting oversight on behalf of a congressional committee.
This is the fifth year for the 10-week internships. Collectively, fourteen Wayne Law students have participated since the program’s inception. Interns are supported by Levin Center staff during their placement.
Launched in March 2015, the Levin Center at Wayne Law educates future attorneys, business leaders, legislators and public servants on their role overseeing public and private institutions and using oversight as an instrument of change. The center is named in honor of former U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, Michigan’s longest-serving U.S. senator, who retired at the beginning of 2015 after 36 years in the Senate. Levin serves as chair of the Levin Center and on the Law School’s faculty as distinguished legislator in residence.
