Melanie Filocco was a summer intern at the O’Neill Institute.

Prior to joining O’Neill, she was a paralegal at a New York City law firm assisting individuals filing claims with the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund due to 9/11 related illnesses. It was there that she initially began developing an interest in health law and health equity. Filocco’s interest in health law expanded during her law school career where she further developed an interest in FDA, addiction, and pharmaceutical law and liability.

Filocco holds a B.A. in Liberal Studies from Seton Hall University and a Master’s Degree in Special Education from St. Peter’s University. She is a rising third year candidate at Seton Hall University School of Law in Newark, New Jersey, and a member of the Seton Hall Legislative Journal.
