05.07.15 — Nicole McAllister '15 has been chosen as one of only 17 third-year law students to join HUD's 2015-2016 class in its Legal Honors program. Nicole's 14-month appointment will commence this fall at HUD's Office of General Counsel in Boston.

"My interest in applying for this opportunity was strengthened by many of my experiences at NUSL," said Nicole. "I have spent the majority of my time during law school focused on human rights - including the human right to housing - and my co-ops at the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty, HUD - Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, and the United Nations helped further my interest in this area of law. Although graduation closes a chapter in my legal career, I am very excited to begin working with HUD."
