Hannah Werner

Law School: Chicago-Kent College of Law

Graduation Year: 2024

Practice Area of Interest: Estate Planning, Real Estate, and Business Transactions

Professional Background: In May of 2020, I graduated with a B.A. in Public Relations and a B.A. in Psychology from Auburn University. After working at Ankin Law Office for almost a year, I discovered an interest in law and joined the Chicago-Kent community. I am a 2L representative for the Society of Women in Law, as well as a member of various organizations matching my passions, such as the First-Generation Law Student Association and the Chicago Kent Animal Legal Defense Fund. Because of an amazing, hands-on legal internship, I look forward to a career in estate planning, real estate, or business law.

Outside Interests: In my limited free time, I enjoy playing with my dogs, spending time with family, and listening to true crime podcasts. I also love traveling, whether it’s to Wisconsin for the weekend or New York to visit my best friend.

What I Am Most Looking Forward to About Being a Lawyer: I’m excited to get to know people that also have a passion for law and helping others through the legal system. I especially look forward to doing pro bono work with those that could not otherwise afford an attorney.
