NAAG Welcomes Supreme Court Fellows for Winter Term
The NAAG Supreme Court Fellows program gives state lawyers an opportunity to obtain direct and intensive hands-on exposure to U.S. Supreme Court practice. The Fellows work in NAAG’s Washington, D.C., office for three- to four-month periods during the Court’s argument session. They watch oral arguments, participate in moot courts, prepare an amicus brief in a Supreme Court case, and draft the Report. The following Fellows joined NAAG for the winter term (January – March):
Jung W. Kim is a deputy attorney general in the environmental enforcement section of the New Jersey Office of Attorney General. In this capacity, she represents the state and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection in cases involving various environmental laws such as the Clean Air Act, and reviews and participates in federal rulemaking actions. Jung recently received the Excellence in Law Support award. Prior to her current position, she clerked for the Honorable Philip Carchman, researching and drafting legal memoranda in criminal and civil matters. Jung received her bachelor’s degree in history from Tufts University and her J.D. from the Rutgers University School of Law.
Melody Brown is an assistant attorney general in the capital and collateral litigation section in the South Carolina Office of the Attorney General. She argues capital and non-capital murder direct appeals, and represents the state in collateral litigation challenges (state and federal) to capital sentences, and federal habeas challenges for any state conviction. Melody is the first attorney from the South Carolina office to participate in this fellowship program. Previously, she worked at the South Carolina Office of Appellate for three years as an assistant appellate defender. She received her bachelor’s degree in government from Wofford College and her J.D. from the University of South Carolina School of Law.
Congratulations and welcome to our fellows!
