Breffni Is Belfast Bound

Pic of Day: Breffni Neary of Fordham Law School is beginning her summer internship in Belfast as the 2022 Brigadier General James Cullen human rights fellow. The fellowship is a partnership between the Brehon Law Society of New York and KRW Law, LLP. The program is in its 6th year. Since 2016  - with the exceptions of summer 2020 and 2021 when the intern remained in the U.S. because of the pandemic - the Brehon Law Society has sent an American law student to Belfast to work on human rights investigations and legacy cases under the supervision of Belfast based lawyer, Niall Murphy .
