Katerina Kramarchyk '13 was recently recognized at a reception in New York City for her participation in the Kenneth G. Standard Internship Program this summer.
The internship program, sponsored by the New York State Bar Association's Corporate Counsel Section, is designed to increase diversity in corporate and related legal departments by providing stipends for law students to engage in a 10-week field placement with a major corporation or nonprofit organization.
Kramarchyk spent her summer with the New York State Technology Enterprise Corporation (NYSTEC), where she worked with the in-house counsel on nonprofit corporate compliance issues. She also reconfigured NYSTEC's human resources policies and developed a guidebook for the organization's board of directors.
Her NYSTEC experience was especially relevant, Kramarchyk noted, as she is pursuing the joint J.D./M.B.A. program with Union Graduate College.
"I was able to simultaneously immerse myself in projects that dealt with both business and law," she said, "which resulted in an invaluable workplace experience."
NYSTEC is an information technology and communications engineering firm with offices across the state that specializes in consulting government agencies and other institutions on technology acquisition projects.
Now back at Albany Law School for her final year, Kramarchyk is an associate editor with the Albany Law Journal of Science & Technology and a senior editor for the Center for Judicial Process. She has also been active with the Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition and the Student Bar Association Senate.
An Albany native, Kramarchyk earned a dual degree in English and History from Stony Brook University.
