Ellen Santos ’14 Prizes Wide-ranging Experiences of HNBA-Prudential Fellowship

A law-related undergraduate class at Rutgers University taught by a passionate civil rights attorney prompted Ellen Santos ’14 to attend law school “to gain the tools necessary to advocate on behalf of others who cannot adequately represent themselves.” At Rutgers School of Law–Newark, Santos’s Business Associations class with Professor Doug Eakeley and his career guidance stoked a growing interest in corporate work. As a student in the Community and Transactional Lawyering Clinic, with its focus on corporate and transactional legal services, Santos became even more certain of her preference for transactional work over litigation. That interest in business law along with strong academic credentials and project management skills won her the 2014 HNBA-Prudential Law Fellowship. Santos’s first two years are at Lowenstein Sandler LLP, where partner Miguel Pozo ’98 has been a particularly inspiring role model and mentor. The third year of the fellowship will provide an opportunity to work in Prudential’s Law Department – two valuable experiences for a new lawyer looking forward to transactional practice. | Read Story
