Erica Waters graduated from Albany Law School of University in Albany, New York in December 2015 after accelerating her studies into a two and a half year program. While attending Albany Law School, Ms. Waters was a member of the Moot Court Board, competed on an appellate travel team, and, along with her partner Kellan Potts, won the Fall 2015 Donna Jo Morse Client Counseling competition. Ms. Waters passed the February 2016 New York State Bar Examination, and is currently awaiting admission.
Ms. Waters began building her legal career first in the Schenectady County District Attorney’s Office, where she acquired experience in a broad variety of criminal law issues. Following that internship, she served as a Summer Law Clerk in General Counsel’s Office of the New York State Department of State, assisting with legislative memos, bill drafting, FOIL issues, and other administrative law matters. She then capped off her legal internships by serving as a legal intern for the Albany Law School Clinic and Justice Center in their Tax and Transactions Clinic. Her last semester in law school was spent assisting both individual and organizational clients with matters with the IRS and New York State Department of Taxation, with a special emphasis on clients seeking 501(c)(3) tax status.
Prior to attending Albany Law School, Ms. Waters received her Bachelor’s in Political Science and English Literature from Randolph-Macon College in 2012, at which point two prior internships in United States Congress while working toward her Bachelor’s then inspired her to move to Washington, DC. Ms. Waters then worked for two lobbying firms and an electric drive association before moving back to New York to attend law school.
