Lauren Van Diggelen

About Lauren: I am originally from Twin Lakes, WI and have family in Woodstock, IL. I have known that I wanted to go to law school for a long time. My career goals include working for the State’s Attorney’s Office, helping abused and neglected clients, and maybe becoming a Guardian Ad Litem. In my free time I enjoy painting and reading.

Previous Legal and/or Professional Experience: I job shadowed in high school, went to the courthouse on breaks, and did an internship with the State’s Attorney’s Office in their Domestic Violence Division. At that internship I got experience doing Orders of Protection and took parenting classes. I also worked this summer prior to matriculating at NIU Law.

Why did you choose NIU Law? I chose NIU Law because I know some of the alumni who were very positive about their experiences here.

What activities do you want to be involved in? I am going to get involved in our Public Interest Law Society and our Trial Advocacy program.
