Law School: UIC John Marshall Law School
Graduation Year: 2022
Practice Area of Interest: Intellectual Property
Professional Background: I am currently a 2L at UIC John Marshall Law School. I am very involved around campus, but just to highlight – I am the President of the Video Game Law Society (VGLS) and Secretary of the Intellectual Property Law Society (IPLS). I graduated with a B.S. in Molecular Biology from Loyola University Chicago, which really drives my interest in Intellectual Property. I am going to take courses in U.S. Trademark Law and U.S. Patent Law and hope to work in the Patent Clinic in the upcoming year.
Outside Interests: When I am not poring over law books, I enjoy traveling and trying new cuisines, watching musicals, and playing video games with my husband. If I have extra time throughout the year, I try to stay involved with my local theater guilds.
What I Am Most Looking Forward to About Being a Lawyer: I am excited to be the first lawyer in my family and to dispel any negative misconceptions that people have. As for intellectual property, I am looking forward to seeing the complicated and intriguing designs that inventors come up with. I have always enjoyed learning and I believe patents, and intellectual property as a whole, will keep me up to date on the ‘next big thing’!
