Samantha Albrecht

About Samantha: I started out my undergraduate work at the University of South Carolina studying Marine Science because of my passion for environmental law. I then finished at NIU with a degree in Political Science. My passion for environmental law lies more with the political side of things rather than the biological research side so my degree in Political Science and one day my J.D. from NIU Law will allow me to pursue my career goals in environmental law. In my free time I enjoy running and rock climbing

Previous Legal and/or Professional Experience: I spent the summer between completing my Bachelor’s degree and entering law school working at an exciting and active summer camp in New York where I encouraged teamwork and courage on the high ropes course. 

Why did you choose NIU Law? I chose NIU Law because of its proximity to home and the small class sizes.

What activities do you want to be involved in? I have already gotten involved in the NIU Law Student Running Group and plan to get involved with the Public Interest Law Society.
