Note: Each summer, Nebraska Appleseed is fortunate to work with a number of bright, talented law clerks and interns. This is one of a series of posts that feature Appleseed’s clerks and interns discussing their backgrounds and experiences.
Name: Seth Wallace
Position: Communications Intern
Hometown: Lincoln, Nebraska
About Me: “I’m a Political Science student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, graduating in December. I hope to attend UNL Law School after that. I’m a bit of a policy and economics nerd, and hope one day to get paid for it.”
Why Appleseed: “The principles that Appleseed is known for advancing in real, important ways are principles I have a great deal of respect for. Fighting for economic self-determination, social justice, and standing up for the underdog: those are causes I believe in strongly. I want to contribute to efforts to better the world we live in, and Appleseed is often at the front lines of doing exactly that. By working here, I hope to gain experience working not only in a law firm, and under such fine people, but also a sense of what policy advocacy takes in the real world. I hope I can continue to contribute to this organization, because its causes very salient to the problems we as a people face.”
Future Plans: “I hope to, with a law degree, enter the public sector, or failing that work for a economic policy, social justice or electronic freedom NGO. My dream job would be as a federal prosecutor going after serious organized crime on Wall Street or in Washington.”
