Miriam Farah joined Relman Colfax in 2023 for a two-year term as a civil rights paralegal. Her work focuses on supporting the firm's civil rights litigation and counseling practices.
In 2023, Miriam graduated cum laude from Claremont McKenna College with a dual major in public policy and history with departmental honors and a minor in gender and sexuality studies. During her senior year, Miriam wrote an honors thesis in history titled "The Criminalization of Girls' Mental Illness: Race, Gender, and Class in Juvenile Collaborative Courts," which won the best thesis in history and gender studies. On campus, she was heavily involved with the Mgrublian Center for Human Rights and worked for Claremont Canopy, a nonprofit organization aimed to help resettle immigrants in Southern California.
In high school, Miriam explored her interest in the legal field by interning for McGregor Law Corp., a criminal defense law firm for three summers, and Teen Court. Her college coursework and previous experience in criminal law inspired her passion for civil rights law, leading her to work for Haysbert & Moultrie LLP, the Fair Housing and Community Development Project at the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and the Constitutional Accountability Center.
In her free time, Miriam likes spending time with her family and friends, exploring D.C., and baking.
