Madison Rosenthal is a summer associate at The Bloom Firm and a rising 3L at Fordham School of Law. She received her Bachelor’s degree in 2019 from the University of Southern California.
While earning her undergraduate degree, Madison actively fought for the rights of marginalized populations, not just in her own community, but for those abroad. At only 19 years old, Madison moved to Ireland with the help of Marshall School of Business Winslow-Maxwell Global Summer Internships to work at REPEAL Project. In a country with some of the most restrictive legislation surrounding women’s bodily autonomy, Madison worked at the forefront of the campaign to repeal the 8th Amendment.
When Madison returned home, eager to remain at the frontier of change, she secured a job at the ACLU of Southern California. There, she worked through her last year of college and accepted a fellowship in the year preceding law school.
In her previous position as a law clerk at the Children’s Law Center of California, Madison assisted in the representation of dual-status youth ages 0-21 in both their dependency and delinquency cases.
Madison is currently a staff member of the Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal, as well as the Communications Director for the International Refugee Assistance Project Chapter at Fordham Law. For her passion for public service and law, Madison was the 2021 Joseph W. Halliday ’63 Summer Fellowship recipient.
In her free time, Madison enjoys exploring the city, reading anything by F. Scott Fitzgerald or Christopher Isherwood, and spending time with her family, her partner, and (most of all) her dog.
