Washington, DC (Jan. 9, 2017) -- The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) welcomes Kaitlin Bigger to NACDL as the inaugural Tiffany May Joslyn White Collar Crime Policy intern.
This internship was created in memory of Tiffany May Joslyn, who served as NACDL's White Collar Crime Policy Counsel from 2008 through 2015, and in honor of her significant contributions to the cause of criminal justice reform, particularly in the areas of white collar crime, overcriminalization, and the erosion of due process protections in the criminal justice system. After leaving NACDL, Tiffany served as Deputy Chief Counsel of the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations for the Democratic staff for the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives. This internship is designed to afford a law student specifically interested in white collar crime and related policy issues with the opportunity to work directly with and learn from leaders in the field.
Kaitlin is a second year law student at American University, Washington College of Law, where she serves as a junior staffer on the Criminal Law Practitioner Brief and the Modern American Brief. She obtained a B.S. in Political Science from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. Kaitlin discovered her passion for criminal justice reform while working with the American Bar Association's Death Penalty Representation Project.
Kaitlin will be interning during her spring 2017 semester at NACDL. She will be assisting the White Collar Crime Policy Department on a variety of advocacy and research projects.
