Justine Bugaoisan

About Justine: I am originally from about 15 miles south of Washington D.C. My grandmother came to this country from the Philippines unable to speak English, which was something that inspired me to want to help people in the first place. Now, I am the first person in my family to go to law school. In my free time I enjoy going to the gym.  

Why did you choose NIU Law? I began to look at law schools in the Chicago area because I have family here. What I liked about NIU Law was the small and close-knit feeling you get here, while still being part of a big university atmosphere.

What activities do you want to be involved in? I am passionate about getting involved in the sports and entertainment law industry and will be joining our Sports and Entertainment Law Society. I participated in Mock Trial as an undergrad and would like to continue that experience here at law school through the Moot Court competition.

This interview was conducted in Fall 2013.
