Albert Cahn, Tobacco Paralegal

Albert Cahn, Tobacco Paralegal
p>Albert Cahn lends his technological expertise and passion for law to NAAG’s Tobacco Project in his role as a paralegal. After graduating from college, this New York City native moved to Washington, D.C. to be in the midst of the political action.

“There is something I find compelling about being here in the seat of government and seeing firsthand how it operates,” Albert said.

His position combines a myriad of technological and legal duties which include managing the server that hosts the new Tobacco Project Wiki, doing legal research, organizing meetings and completing other tasks that vary daily.

“I really enjoy that my position has given me a vehicle to study the areas of law and computer science more intensely,” said Albert.

Albert, a self-proclaimed politics and news junkie, developed an interest in tobacco issues before joining NAAG in August 2007. “I have been interested in the operation of the Master Settlement Agreement since before I came to NAAG. As someone who enjoys studying the law, I find this groundbreaking agreement fascinating. Although, I feel like I’ll never fully understand it because its always full of new surprises,” Albert said.

During his time at NAAG, he hopes to gain a more well-rounded understanding of the legal system in preparation to attend law school in the future.

In his spare time, Albert enjoys cooking, baking, sailing, and playing several musical instruments (guitar, recorder, gemshorn, and more). He is also in the process of launching a video blog and does a variety of computer-based projects.

Albert holds a bachelor’s degree in politics science and philosophy from Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass.
