Meet our 2019 Levin Center Intern Daina Robinson

Daina Robinson, a 2020 Wayne State University Law School graduate and member of the Michigan Bar, is beginning a new career chapter at the committee where she served as a Levin Center legal intern in 2019. The U.S. House of Representatives Oversight and Government Reform Committee has hired Robinson in October 2021 to serve as a legal counsel to assist with its investigations into policy matters. This opportunity allows Robinson to use what she learned from the Levin Center team and her internship in her new role as a congressional investigator.
