Posted on Thursday 3/9/2017

The Spring 2017 D.C. Externship Program had the opportunity to hold a seminar in the Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing Room, where many of the recent confirmation hearings have been held. The seminar was graciously hosted by Distinguished Guest Lecturer Saleela Salahuddin, a Counsel Detailee on the Senate Judiciary Committee, where she primarily provides advice and counsel on intelligence law and other matters.  

Salahuddin gave the participants an encouraging and insightful presentation. She focused her talk around the idea that each person defines their own success. Salahuddin spoke about her path and highlighted challenges and lessons that she learned along the way. The participants of the D.C. Externship Program had the opportunity to have an open conversation with Salahuddin and gained important and beneficial career advice.  

Salahuddin is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Yale Law School. Following law school, she clerked for Judge J. Frederick Motz of the United States District Court for the District of Maryland and joined the United States Department of Justice through the Honors Program.
