Legal Intern

Martina Berger is a rising 3rd-year law student at Columbia Law School. She graduated from Middlebury College in 2017 with a BA in Political Science and a minor in French. Before law school, she worked in legal data consulting in Boston. At Columbia, she has interned at the California Department of Justice, Conservation Law Foundation, and NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

Martina is from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and plans to work in the voting rights realm for her career. During her free time, she likes to go on walks to explore New York City, cook her way through the NYTimes Cooking app, and go thrift shopping.

On June 24, 2022, the United States Supreme Court released its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, overturning the constitutional right to abortion. In so doing, they turned back the clock, looking almost exclusively at reproductive rights from the lens of the mid-1800s and earlier to determine whether the Constitution confers a right to abortion.
