Brittney Ciarlo has been heavily influenced by the international programs offered at ONU. She recently had an incredible experience traveling to Cambodia. She found it incredibly interesting to discover things about that country’s law. She feels that it greatly supplemented her education by allowing her to see things, such as a beautiful Cambodian court, that she never would have learned about in the States. She describes the experience as extremely eye-opening to the ways of the rest of the world.
Brittney also had the opportunity to host an Icelandic student. She was very excited to learn about the different aspects of law that is present in Iceland. “It provides you this totally different perspective,” she says. “Additionally, we get to reaffirm our knowledge by sharing what we learn with them. All the while, they show us what they learn.”
Though Brittney has had a great experience with the international opportunities that ONU offers, she plans on pursuing public defense and public interest. She is very grateful for ONU’s strong commitment to public interest and all the doors that have opened up for her in that manner.
