FIRE is pleased to welcome our new Justice Robert H. Jackson Legal Fellow, Catherine Sevcenko. Catherine graduated magna cum laude from George Mason School of Law after a career as a Foreign Service Officer. After law school, she clerked on the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals for the Hon. Danny J. Boggs and spent a year at the U.S. Supreme Court as a Fellow. She also worked for Steptoe & Johnson, LLP and the Department of Justice. Most recently, she was interim executive director for the U.S. Chess Center, a non-profit in Washington, D.C. that teaches chess to children.
Catherine is also an adjunct professor of appellate writing at George Mason School of Law.
Catherine lives outside of Washington, D.C., with her husband and two children, one of whom attends a “green light” college. She also works with raptors and other wild birds as an apprentice wildlife rehabilitator.
Join us in welcoming Catherine to FIRE!
