Opportunity offers current students chance to experience state government

(Indianapolis) – Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita is pleased to announce that Dedrick Gordon is currently completing his office’s 2010 Internship Program. The summer-long program selects college and university students from around the state and allows them the opportunity to experience state government first-hand through the Secretary of State’s office.

“Dedrick brings a tremendous amount of work experience to our office ranging from education to law and I’m thrilled to have him be part of our legal team, as he is a valuable addition,” said Secretary Rokita. “He has an extraordinary amount of dedication and drive that I feel will help him guide our state and country in future years.”

Gordon is currently pursuing a law degree from Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis and is involved in many organizations including the Business Law Section, Indianapolis Bar Association, the Black Student Law Association and Concerned Christian Men. Gordon previously held an internship with the Attorney General’s office and the Homeowner Protection Unit. 

Since beginning the internship, Gordon has had the opportunity to conduct research on securities and loan broker cases.

“This internship provides insight on what it takes to be a lawyer working in securities and business law, and I’m very eager to work with this team of experienced attorneys in this specialized area,” said Gordon.

A 1996 graduate of Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences, Gordon is the son of Dedrick and Patricia Gordon. He will graduate from the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis in May of 2011 and plans to continue work in the areas of securities and business law.
