The department would like to congratulate the following recent graduates who will be entering law school in the fall.

Ava Dodge (’19) will be staying in the area and heading to Harvard Law School. Ava earned her B.S. in Economics with a minor in Ethics.

She is interested in corporate mergers and acquisitions, antitrust, and international commercial arbitration. She sees herself working in “BigLaw” one day, and after that, perhaps as in-house counsel for an aerospace company. Ava worked at management consulting companies for both of her co-ops and found that her skills and interests were aligned with the work being done by corporate attorneys.



Ben Mann (’19) will be leaving Boston for the Windy City, where he’ll be attending the University of Chicago Law School.

While at Northeastern, Ben majored in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics. His interests include antitrust litigation, securities litigation, and commercial litigation. Ben sees himself becoming a litigator one day. His co-op experience at Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, a class-action litigation firm, played a significant role in motivating him to become a lawyer.



Rachel Samuels (’19) will also be staying in the area and attending Boston University School of Law in the fall. She earned her B.S. in Political Science and Economics.

She is most interested in public interest law, and one day, she envisions herself doing policy work for a non-profit or working for government. Rachel’s decision to attend law school stemmed from a co-op at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. While there, she experienced first-hand how attorneys can play an important role in shaping social policy.



Amika M. Singh (’18) will be leaving Boston for upstate New York and attending Cornell Law School in the fall.

She earned her B.S. in Political Science and Economics with a minor in Music Performance. While at Northeastern, Amika was quite active, accumulating an impressive list of extracurricular activities. She is particularly interested in civil rights law, though she is also drawn to academic areas like law and economics, legal theory, and legal philosophy. Amika was inspired to go to law school by a Jurisprudence course she took at Oxford University.
