Laura Sahng is a summer intern at the O’Neill Institute.
Since interning at a human rights nongovernmental organization for her gap year, Sahng has been interested in a range of global issues. She has worked at some of New Zealand’s top law firms — most recently as a summer clerk, researching public law and regulatory matters — and volunteers at the local community law center. At university, she was vice president of a student-lead organization promoting public interest law. She is looking forward to learning more about health law in relation to human rights and international development studies.
Sahng is currently a student at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, and will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in political sciences and international relations, and a Bachelor of Laws at the end of 2022.
