Regent Law Student Interns on Capitol Hill

Regent Law School students intern in some amazing places. This summer, rising third-year law student Meghan Terry is spending five weeks on Capitol Hill as one of South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint’s congressional interns.

Terry’s typical day with the Senate Steering Committee includes researching bills coming up for floor debate, attending congressional hearings, and drafting talking points for Sen. DeMint’s speaking engagements.

"I knew very little about Capitol Hill before arriving, and it’s been a learning experience from the bottom up,” Terry said. “I now realize the full impact of the decisions our congressmen make. Plus, it’s an honor interning for a Senator from my home state.”

Terry is interning on Capitol Hill through ACLJ’s congressional intern program.
