Throughout her time in law school, Briana focused her studies on immigration law and spent her out-of-class time doing immigrant-related public policy research, analysis, advocacy, and implementation. As President of the Immigration Law Association, she started a monthly newsletter and developed a rapid response initiative for Afghans in August of 2021. She also completed a Public Policy Fellowship with the Boston Mayor’s Office for Immigrant Advancement and has experience teaching English and providing community integration assistance to newly arrived immigrants.
