On Wednesday, September 5, CAL had the pleasure of welcoming Anjali Pathmanathan, Chloe Serinsky, Beulah Sims-Agbabiaka, and Emmanuel Arnaud. Before CAL, Anjali worked at the Vera Institute of Justice for their Center on Immigration and Justice. Chloe will be joining our Immigrant Justice Project after having spent two years clerking with Honorable Deborah A. Batts in the Southern District of New York. Beulah joins us from Columbia University School of Law where she was Editor in Chief of the Columbia Journal of Race and Law, an Oldham’s Fellow and an NAACP Legal Defense Fund Earl Warren Scholar. Before joining CAL, Emmanuel was a law clerk to the Honorable Nelson Román in the Southern District of New York in addition to working as a fellowship attorney at Justice 360. Earlier this summer we also welcomed Director of Trial Court Litigation Marika Meis from the Bronx Defenders and client advocate Juli Lopez, joining us from the Coalition for Hispanic Family Services. We're extremely excited to get to know each of these new CAL staff members and see them do great work for our clients!
