Misha has traveled to Seattle and Los Angeles to compete for her school in an Appellate Court competition centering on First Amendment rights, and two labor law competitions. These experiences have solidified Ms. Jamshidi’s passion for litigation and oral advocacy.

She is part of the Big Sibling program to help first year law students’ transition, as well as serving as a tutor in criminal law for them. During her first summer, Ms. Jamshidi had the opportunity to clerk at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. During this time, she got to participate in an FBI/SWATT/LAPD training program, tour maximum security prisons, and tour Homeland Security Offices.
