Amanda Mortwedt Oh, 2012


Amanda Mortwedt Oh hails from St. James, Minnesota, and recently obtained a JD from the University of St. Thomas School of Law (Minneapolis, MN).  During law school, she studied abroad at the National University of Singapore and then interned for the United Nations at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  More recently, she was a judicial intern for The Honorable Susan Richard Nelson, U.S. District Judge, District of Minnesota, and an international justice intern at The Advocates for Human Rights, a non-profit human rights organization in Minnesota.

Before law school and Fletcher, she was an active duty member of the U.S. Army Psychological Operations Group and deployed to South Korea, Afghanistan at the U.S. Embassy–Kabul (OEF), Thailand, and Cambodia at the U.S. Embassy–Phnom Penh.  She is currently a member of the Army Reserve with Pacific Command in Hawaii.

While at Fletcher, she hopes to continue to combine her legal knowledge with her military experiences and training.  Specifically, she would like to pursue further studies related to North Korea and Cambodia in the fields of human rights law and international humanitarian law.  She recently got married to Amos Oh, who is an active duty member of the U.S. Army and currently a student as well (HKS ’13).
