Patricia Donahue

About Patti: I have always wanted to go to law school. I was on the debate team in high school because I enjoy analysis and research. I like criminal justice and learning how people work. When I get free time I like to play sports, basketball in particular, as well as read, draw and cook.

Why did you choose NIU Law? A grandfather figure in my life is a retired judge who told me that NIU Law is a good school that is affordable and offers experiential learning opportunities. I liked that NIU Law focuses on giving back to the community and training lawyers to be productive members of the legal system.

What activities do you want to be involved in? I am in the Public Interest Law Society and the Criminal Law Society.
