We welcome summer law clerk Alexandria Hodge. Ali earned a degree in writing from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, a Master’s in Education from the University College London, and a Master’s in Interdisciplinary Education Studies: Urban Education Policy from the John’s Hopkins University, where she co-authored a report set to be published by the American Educational Research Association. After five successful years in the classroom as a language arts and reading teacher, she yearned to understand the issues afflicting public schools, which led her to attend law school. Currently, a candidate for a J.D. at the University of Baltimore School of Law, Ali has immersed herself in school law, tax law, and litigation. In her 2L year, she represented her university at the National Taxation Law Moot Court Team at the University of Miami and made it to the semifinals. She currently serves as the President of the Board of Advocates and as an Associate Editor for University of Baltimore Law Forum.
With an affection for writing, research, and public speaking, Ali has clerked with the Maryland Office of the Public Defender, Maryland Legal Aid, the Maryland Office of the Attorney General, and most recently, The Children’s Guild, tackling employment, administrative, and school law matters.
A glimpse of Ali’s community service includes:
- Volunteering as a dyslexia literacy tutor in Nebraska
- Volunteering with AmeriCorps
- Managing youth volunteers at Thread Baltimore, a community connector that supports at-risk students in Baltimore City Public Schools
Ali is an avid reader and enthusiastic museumgoer has completed two unforgettable road trips: the NC500 in Scotland and Route 1 from Jacksonville to Key West.
