Madeleine earned three scholarships from legal organizations to attend the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, where she graduated in the top 15 percent of her class in May 2018.

Madeleine’s skills in trial presentation, legal research, and ethics set her up for a brilliant legal career, and BAM is thrilled to have her start that career amongst its ranks.
Madeleine’s skills have been further developed outside the classroom. Over the past five years, Madeleine has interned and volunteered for a variety of non-profits, legal organizations and Denver area law firms. In Spring of 2017, Madeleine worked as a judicial extern for U.S. District Court Magistrate Kristen L. Mix.
