Law Students Selected as Presidential Management Finalists

Howard University School of Law students Michelle Mills and Nnamdi Anozie

WASHINGTON (April 19, 2013) – Howard University School of Law students Michelle Mills and Nnamdi Anozie have been selected as finalists for the prestigious 2013 Presidential Management Fellows Program.

The highly selective leadership program, which is administered by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, recruits outstanding, masters-level, law and doctoral students for two-year assignments at federal agencies.

“The Presidential Management Fellowship is ideal for graduates who want to operate at the highest policy level in the federal government,” said Okianer Christian Dark, interim dean of the Howard University School of Law. “Mr. Anozie and Ms. Mills have consistently demonstrated outstanding leadership capabilities throughout their three years at the School of Law.”

Anozie graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor of arts degree in anthropology and political science from Howard University in 2010 and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. As an undergraduate, Anozie had internships at the U.S. House of Representatives, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Economic Policy Institute. Anozie also has worked as a summer associate at domestic and international law firms.

In 2011, Mills graduated from the University of Miami where she majored in psychology and economics. She works as a student attorney in the Investor Justice & Education Clinic at Howard’s law school. She serves as the president of the Goler Teal Butcher International Moot Court.

The two will join other finalists May 1-3, for a “Virtual” Job Fair that will determine their fellowship assignments.
