WASHINGTON, D.C. | September 29, 2021 — On Thursday, October 7th, 2021 at 12:00pm ET, Siri Nelson, Executive Director of National Whistleblower Center (NWC), will appear on the Rappaport Center for Law and Public Policy’s webinar, “Navigating Law School as a Student of Color,” hosted by Boston College Law.
Nelson will speak on how her experiences at Northeastern University School of Law led her to NWC and her experience navigating law school as a student of color in leadership. Nelson was Co-Chair of Northeastern’s Black Law Students Association, Chair of Northeastern’s Student Bar Association, and founder of a student organization devoted to cultivating relationships between attorneys and grassroots organizers.
Nelson, a 2018 Rappaport Fellow, will speak alongside Stephanie Johnson, Associate at Klein Hornig and 2016 Rappaport Fellow, and Adrián Santiago Ortiz, 2L student at Boston College Law School and President of the Boston College Latin American Law Student Association. Briana Broberg, the 2021 Rappaport Fellow, will moderate the panel.
Nelson said, “I am deeply honored to speak alongside amazing lawyers and burgeoning law professionals at Boston College Law’s Rappaport Center. Briana Broberg is a phenomenal and passionate future attorney, and I am a proud Rappaport Fellow. Information sharing from the perspective of former law students of color is one of the unique ways attorneys like me can give back, and I am so honored to have been selected to participate in this important panel. I commend the Rappaport Center for organizing this important discussion and thank Boston College Law for hosting it – I am sure we will have a fantastic conversation.”
