The new Summer 2006 Interns gathered to meet one another and hear about the program before the summer began.
John B. Bellinger III, Legal Adviser for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, hosted a Q&A luncheon for summer interns and shared his experiences in federal public service. Bellinger was frank and personal with the interns, answering both substantive and career-planning questions at great length. Students who were especially interested about working at the State Department in the future received advice from Bellinger on how to best position themselves for their careers after law school.
DC Federal District Judge Richard Leon LLM '79 volunteered to meet with a group of Heyman interns at the Federal courthouse. Judge Leon answered questions about everything from his docket, to public and private career paths, to federal clerkships. After a career spanning prosecution, congressional investigations, private practice, academia, and the federal bench, Judge Leon emphasized the deep satisfaction that public service affords.
Summer interns had the opportunity to converse and mingle with Heyman Fellows at the Partnership for Public Service in Washington D.C. Over 40 fellows and interns attended the event.
Paul Rosenzweig, Counselor to the Department of Homeland Security's Policy Directorate and Acting Assistant Secretary for Policy Development, lunched with DC Heyman Interns. In addition to his current position, Rosenzweig spoke about his experiences investigating environmental crimes at DOJ and working as Investigative Counsel for a House committee.
Heyman Summer Interns were joined by a plethora of Heyman Fellows on the Hill and other Hill lawyers for a discussion of legislative careers. Attendees included Heyman Fellows Jeff Baran (House Government Reform), Holly Idelson (Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs), Mike McCarthy (House Government Reform), Peg McGlinch (Representative Neal), and Michael Zamore (Representative Kennedy), as well as Elise Bean and Zach Schram (Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations), Peter Levine '83 (Senate Armed Services), and Bill Yeomans LLM '78 (Senate Judiciary).
The newest batch of Heyman Fellows was introduced at the Seventh Annual Dinner in Washington, D.C. Remarks were given by 2003 Heyman Fellow Susanne Sachsman, then working at the Tax Division at DOJ, and the keynote speaker for the evening was John B. Bellinger III, Legal Adviser for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. More than 50 Heyman Fellows and alumni were in attendance, and honored guests included: U.S. District Judge Richard Leon; William Yeomans, Chief Counsel for Ted Kennedy on the Senate Judiciary Committee; Phil Barnett, Chief Counsel for Representative Waxman on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee; Paul Rosenzweig, Counselor of the Policy Directorate at the Department of Homeland Security; and Elise Bean, Chief Counsel for Senator Levin on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations.

2004 Heyman Fellow Leo Wise '03, an Honors Attorney in DOJ's Criminal Fraud Section, spent the evening walking about 40 HLS students through some of the most interesting elements of the Enron case, which Wise spent 4 months litigating in early 2006. Wise discussed strategy, the timeline of events, and the challenges of bringing complex issues to a jury.
Four Heyman Fellows joined HLS students for dinner and a panel discussion about their experiences working in federal government. Panelists included Mark Freeman '03 (DOJ, Civil Appellate); Carol Bell, (DOJ, Antitrust Division); Kevin Deeley (General Counsel's Office of the Federal Election Commission); and Michelle Yau (Solicitor's Office of the Department of Labor), and the panel was moderated by Senior Heyman fellow in Residence Jim Flug. Students in attendance were given the opportunity to hear about a number of different career options in federal government, including trial litigation, appellate practice, and agency counsel, as well as an even wider range of substantive law, including constitutional law, antitrust, labor, criminal law, election law, and administrative law.
