Jeremiah Clarke

Disability Law Fellow

Jeremiah Clarke joined Disability Rights North Carolina in March 2022. As the disability law fellow Jeremiah will have the opportunity to rotate between DRNC’s legal teams to expand his experience and skills in the first months of his fellowship. He has expressed particular interest in the work of DRNC’s education and community inclusion teams. Jeremiah, who is from the Bahamas, received his bachelor’s degree in pre-law from Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach Florida and graduated from Liberty University School of Law in December 2021. In law school, Jeremiah held internships in the areas of criminal and juvenile defense, including an internship with the Council for Children’s Rights in Charlotte, NC. Jeremiah is passionate about using his legal knowledge, as well as his personal experience with cerebral palsy, in becoming a valuable asset for the disabled community. In his free time he enjoys writing poetry, playing chess, and spending time with friends and family.
