Samuel Lucas

Legal Assistant

Education Education

B.S., University of Notre Dame, cum laude

Sam joined Becket in April 2020 as a Legal Assistant. He assists Becket’s attorneys in a myriad of ways, including cite-checking briefs, preparing and filing court documents, and providing general administrative support.

Prior to entering the world of religious liberty, Sam graduated cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Notre Dame in 2017, where he was a Tocqueville Fellow and Kellogg International Scholar. After graduating, he completed a USAID Global Development Fellowship in Blantyre, Malawi, before moving to Washington to work in medicine. Subsequent experiences at the American Enterprise Institute’s Program on American Citizenship and the James Wilson Institute solidified his interest in law.

In his spare time, Sam loves to follow the NBA and make up for his science-heavy undergraduate education by reading great literature and exploring the rich intellectual and cultural history of his own Catholic faith. However, he admits he should probably develop some more useful hobbies while he is still young and without any real responsibilities.
