American Bar Foundation

Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow

June - July 2021 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

I spent the summer as a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow with the American Bar Foundation (ABF), which is a non-profit national sociolegal research institute based in Chicago. I worked with a research professor from Northwestern University on a project that traces the various experiences and career outcomes of a national cohort of lawyers who entered the bar in 2000. I also had the opportunity to meet and network with a multitude of law firms and legal advocacy organizations and to mentor a wonderful small group of students from a local Chicago high school called DRW College Prep. At the end of the summer, I gave a presentation to ABF faculty on my research called "Lawyering in America: The Hemispheres Thesis and ‘Public Interest Drift.’”
