President Barack Obama has nominated Shirley Woodward, a partner in law firm Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP‘s litigation and controversy department for six years, to the inspector general post at the CIA inspector general.
Woodward started work in WilmerHale as an associate in 2001 and became a counsel at the firm in 2007 until she was appointed to her current role in 2010, the White House said Thursday.
Prior to WilmerHale, she was the associate general counsel and chief Iraq investigator for the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the U.S. Concerning Weapons of Mass Destruction.
She has also served as a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
