December 18, 2012 —
Earlier this year, Hillery became the U.S. Naval Academy’s first paraplegic graduate. He enrolled at the Naval Academy with dreams of becoming a Navy SEAL until a 2011 biking accident left him paralyzed from the waist down. He began his studies at Georgetown Law this fall and was recently profiled on the Georgetown University website: http://www.georgetown.edu/news/kevin-hillery-navy-law-center.html.
AliKhan, an associate in the appellate practice group at O’Melveny & Myers, graduated in the top 10 percent of her Georgetown Law class. Forbes noted that her resume includes clerking for two federal judges, the Justice Department’s Bristow Fellowship and a D.C. Circuit case win at 25.
Noronha is deputy director at the Republican National Lawyers Association. Forbes highlighted her distinction as the first Asian-American president of the Philodemic Society, a debating union founded in 1830. The publication also cited her being accepted early to Georgetown Law without submitting an LSAT score.
