Information About Mitchell Brown:

Mitchell Brown was born in Fredericksburg, VA and he is a second-year law student at New York University School of Law. Mitchell serves as the President of the Black Allied Law Students Association (BALSA), and is a staff editor for the Review of Law and Social Change. Mitchell is a 2012 graduate of North Carolina A&T State University, earning a Bachelors of Science in Business Economics and a Minor in Philosophy. Mitchell interned with Common Cause-North Carolina during college, registering students and members of the community to vote. As a Common Cause intern, he helped to promote the collegiate voice in the fight against the 2011 Voter ID Bill in North Carolina. It was during this struggle that he recognized his call to enter the legal profession. As an attorney, he intends to fight injustices in our legal system that are still being perpetrated against many sectors of our society. Mitchell is very passionate about this pursuit, because “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”. His passion continues forth as he worked at the Brennan Center For Justice in the summer of 2015, working on voting rights, fair courts, and money and politics.

Mitchell served as a 2012 Teach For America Corps Member, teaching 8th grade special education at KIPP Central City Academy in inner city New Orleans, LA. Mitchell’s inspiration for entering the legal field originates from a biblical and community standpoint. He believes that he has been called to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, to defend the defenseless, and to empower those who feel powerless. Mitchell will strive to do this by working as a legal advocate in the civil rights arena, aiming to ensure that the United States lives up to its promises made in our Constitution.
