Saima Shafiq Mohsin knew she wanted to be a lawyer since she was 12.
Now Mohsin RC’90 RLAW’94 is in the top tier of her profession as the new Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. She is also the first Muslim U.S. attorney in the nation.
Mohsin’s path to becoming the top federal law enforcement official for a region of 6.5 million people, including Detroit, began with the journey from her family’s home in Montclair to Rutgers University-New Brunswick.
