Minnesota Law Student Ambassadors

Meet Minnesota Law’s Student Ambassadors

Student ambassadors work with Minnesota Law’s Office of Admissions to provide outreach and make connections with prospective students who are considering attending the University of Minnesota Law School. Ambassadors help with various initiatives, including attendance at recruiting events, affinity group connections, and pipeline programs like the MN PreLaw Scholars Program and Discover Law. We are pleased to introduce some of Minnesota Law’s student ambassadors who also serve on our diversity and belonging workgroup or are a part of the Law School’s Diversity and Belonging Affinity Council.

“As an Admissions Ambassador, I try to use my experiences as a first-generation law student and student of color to help inform and demystify the application and decision-making process for prospective students. I also view my role as an opportunity to help shape our law school, and the future legal profession, into one that is radically inclusive, diverse, and ready to tackle the societal and institutional issues in our society. I currently serve as a Co-President of the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA) and as a mentor with Women Law Students Association, Well-Being Initiative, and APALSA. I am also a staff member on the Minnesota Law Review and a certified student attorney for the Immigration and Human Rights Clinic. I plan to pursue a career in corporate accountability and consumer protection.”

“As a 2L at the University of Minnesota Law School, I've had the chance to truly explore and expand my interest areas. In these past semesters, I've been involved with the Asylum Law Project, the Latino Law Student Association, and the Journal of International Law. Since I am interested in international law and human rights, these opportunities and experiences have allowed me to learn more about these areas. As an admission's ambassador, I get to connect with students like myself and provide guidance with the admissions process - something I greatly took advantage of when I was applying as a first-generation law student. Additionally, having grown up in Costa Rica, I can assist diverse students who may not be as accustomed to the U.S. education system or may want to learn more about how my upbringing has played a role in where I am today.”

“As co-president of the Black Law Students Association I get to create programming for the Minnesota Law community which aims to expose students, staff, and faculty to incredible speakers who are passionate about racial justice and diversity and inclusion in the legal field. During my 1L year I participated in the Asylum Law Project and traveled to El Paso, Texas where I was able to work on real asylum cases which included arguing in front of an immigration judge. Now, as a certified student attorney in the Immigration and Human Rights Clinic, I am gaining more practical experience by interviewing clients, filing briefs in federal court, coordinating with other agencies, and writing country conditions reports that will be published for use around the world. As an Admissions Ambassador, I get to work directly with our Admissions staff to ensure the school is taking direct and impactful measures to increase diversity at Minnesota Law. By working with the Law School’s Diversity and Belonging Affinity Council I am able to further these efforts by helping to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students. At Minnesota Law I am doing more than simply receiving an incredible education, I am also getting the opportunity to use my voice and experiences to help create a more diverse and inclusive community so that prospective students who look like me or who have similar backgrounds can feel that they have a place at Minnesota Law."

“I have had a great experience at Minnesota Law, which is why I am always excited to connect with prospective students as Co-Head Admissions Ambassador. Currently, I am a 2L and serve as Co-President for OutLaw, the LGBTQIA+ affinity group, I am also a staffer on Minnesota Law Review and a student attorney for the Tax Clinic. This summer I will be a fellow at Seyfarth Shaw's Employee Benefit Group in Chicago. A common thread through all of my activities and employment is the strong Minnesota Law community, both current students and alumni, that have shared their experiences and knowledge to help me explore and shape my next steps.”
