Lauren Gold Attorney
The daughter of an Austrian immigrant, Lauren Gold grew up in Ithaca, New York, and Cambridge, England. Before law school, Lauren earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Cornell and worked as a newspaper reporter in West Palm Beach, Florida. There, she was privileged to learn and write about many issues relating to immigration and migrant farm workers. “It was the first time I really thought about some of the injustices of our immigration system, and I wished I could do more to help,” she says.
After 10 years in journalism and science writing, Lauren returned to law school to focus on immigration law. As a student at the University of Maryland School of Law, she interned at the Department of Justice’s Office of Immigration Litigation and earned the Law School’s Public Service Award for her work in the Immigration Clinic.
