Miles Allen is a Legal Assistant in the Washington, DC office of Sanford Heisler Sharp, a national law firm with offices in the District of Columbia, New York, California, Tennessee, Maryland, and Georgia. He received his B.A. summa cum laude from Carleton College, where he was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.

At Carleton, Miles studied how social justice campaigns operate within and influence international political systems. His senior thesis explores how movements for women’s rights and AIDS treatment access have used military and security institutions to achieve their goals. While at Carleton, Miles served as a student departmental advisor for the Political Science Department and as an editor on the editorial board of the Undergraduate Journal for Humanistic Studies.

Outside of school, Miles’ research has focused on humanitarian policy and international security, especially within the context of the Syrian civil war. As an intern at UOSSM International and the Carter Center, he researched the challenges of providing humanitarian aid in conflict zones and the legality of the arms trade in Syria. More recently, Miles led a Davis Project for Peace grant focused on political polarization and interned at The Advocates for Human Rights in Minneapolis.

Miles is considering studying law and public policy in the future.
