Olivia Summers 
Class of 2013

During her second year at Regent Law, Olivia worked with the Center for Global Justice as a Student Staff member. She assisted on various research projects, including exploring possible internship opportunities for future students.

In the summer of 2012, Olivia interned throught the Center with the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ) in Strasbourg, France. During her time with the ECLJ, Olivia conducted research pertaining to issues of first impression for the ECHR, gained a deeper understanding of European law, attended ECHR proceedings, and worked on a project to help the cause of then-imprisoned Iranian pastor, Youcef Nadarkhani. In addition, she translated several ECLJ documents from French to English, one of which was presented to the ECHR.

Olivia now works as an associate attorney with the American Center for Law and Justice. Her work is primarily focused on protecting the First Amendment freedoms of speech and religion, but she also works to protect the rights of the most vulnerable—unborn children.
