Meet Your Resident Fellow
Five Resident Fellows work hard to make your stay in Gewirz safe, comfortable, and enjoyable. RF's act as liasons between administration and students, helping to enforce administrative policies and conveying student concerns to administrators. RF's also work to develop a supportive community at Gewirz by coordinating social events and group activities. At least one RF is always on call in case of an emergency. Below are a list of your RFs for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Bill King- Floors 2 & 3 Apt. 304
Bill is a native of Baltimore, Maryland, a city rich in history and renowned for it's local culture and hospitality. Ever heard of McCulloch vs. Maryland? - it all started in Baltimore! Ever heard of the crab cake? - it probably started in Baltimore! Bill attended Swarthmore College where he studied Psychology and Philosophy, competed on Swat's varsity track team and directed the mock trial program. Having decided to become a real lawyer, he entered his 1L year at Georgetown in the fall of 2012. Aside from his role as a Gewirz Resident Fellow (which is by far his favorite), Bill serves as Vice President of the Student Bar Association and is member of the Barristers' Council trial advocacy division. In his copious free time, Bill enjoys playing music, exploring DC with friends, and going for evening jogs around the monuments. Contact Bill anytime with questions, concerns, compliments? Or just to hang out!
Welcome to Georgetown Law!
Parker Schnell - Floors 4 & 5 Apt. 504
Parker is a native of Buffalo, New York whose family currently resides in Baltimore, MD. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Politics and Philosophy.

Parker is a 3L at Georgetown and in addition to being an RF, is the President of the Student Bar Association. Parker spent the past summer at the Maryland Disability Law Center in Baltimore working on special education litigation. She is interested in criminal law and civil rights litigation and advocacy. Parker has loved her time at Georgetown so far and is excited to continue sharing that with a new class of students. Contact her anytime about anything and especially if you'd like to join Steeler Nation.
Catherine Yang - Floors 6 & 7 Apt. 704
Catherine is from Orlando, Florida and regretfully admits that she has yet to visit Harry Potter World (donations appreciated). She received her degree in Politics from Princeton University, where she worked at the Writing Center, joined an eating club, and experienced her first and only snow day ever. Now a proud Georgetown Section 1 survivor, Catherine is Managing Editor of the Georgetown Journal of International Law and looks forward to participating in the Institute for Public Representation clinic. During her summers in law school, Catherine has worked as a summer associate at Paul, Weiss in DC and as an intern for the US Attorney's Office in DC. For fun, Catherine enjoys bargain hunting, watching All The TV, and caramelizing onions. Welcome to Georgetown Law!
Sharmi Das - Floors 8 & 9 Apt. 904
Sharmi was born in Boston, MA and grew up in Cincinnati, OH, where she ate much ice cream and chili. She majored in political science with a concentration in international relations at Yale University before running off to New York for two years of adventure (at a securities litigation firm and a fantastic technology company) where she ate more ice cream, less chili, and lots of dumplings. During her first year at GULC, she interned at The Rebecca Project, joined Georgetown Human Rights Action/Amnesty International (HRA-AI), worked on an Innocence Project case team, participated in the Human Rights Associates program, and started a cookbook club with a fabulous crew of fellow food-loving 1Ls. She spent the summer exploring DC while interning at International Rights Advocates. During 2L year, she served as co-President of HRA-AI, served as a staff editor on the Journal of National Security Law & Policy, competed with the Trial Advocacy team, and interned with The Department of Justice - Human Rights and Special Prosecutions section. She spent this summer as a summer associate at Crowell & Moring LLP and serving as a research assistant on national security issues. As a 3L she looks forward to a clinical experience with GULC's refugee and asylum clinic (CALS). In her spare time, she likes to bargain hunt, dance, and watch Gilmore Girls, The West Wing, most things on TNT, and Downton Abbey.Welcome to Georgetown Law!
Kyle George - Floors 10 & 11 Apt. 1004
Kyle was born in the Caribbean on the island of Trinidad. After moving to the United States, Kyle lived in New York City where he attended Stuyvesant High School. After high school, Kyle took the advice “move west, young man” too literally, and moved progressively westward, living in San Antonio, Austin, and Phoenix, before settling in Las Vegas. Kyle holds Bachelor and Master degrees in Chemistry, and is concurrently working on his PhD (during his plentiful law school free time).
This of course leaves a ton of uncommitted time. In this free time, Kyle practices taekwondo, where he holds a black belt; and is an avid photographer, where he holds a camera. Welcome to Georgetown, and welcome to your new Gewirz home!
