Thanks to International House Summer Intern

Douglas B. Thie, a student at UNC School of Law, worked last summer in the Ginter Immigration Law Clinic. Under the mentorship of Immigration Attorney Anne L. Crotty, Doug assisted with cases involving permanent residency and citizenship. He researched legal issues, prepared motions for Immigration Court, and drafted petitions and applications for permanent residency and naturalization.

The internship allowed Doug to gain exposure to his chosen field of practice. "Anne has truly been a great teacher and mentor. My work has been very rewarding and inspiring." Doug's fluency in Spanish, experience in working with low-income clients and his superior writing and research skills were invaluable to the Clinic.

His internship was made possible by the McMillan Fellowship program of the Mecklenburg Bar Foundation, awarded in honor of the late Judge James B. McMillan. International House has won McMillan Fellowships for the past 4 years.
