Take a look at what your Legal Studies classmates have been up to since graduating:
Class of 2017-2018
- Amber Gibson (minor) writes, "Since graduating from Northwestern in June, I’ve moved a whole 3 miles from Evanston to Rogers Park. I now work at the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit as a Deputy Clerk and will be applying to law school at some point in the future. I’m actually in Evanston more often than I assumed I would be because of my movie habit and the draw of $5 Tuesdays. Besides that, I spend a lot of my free time exploring what Chicago has to offer and attempting to study for the LSAT."
Class of 2015-2016
- Leo Hu (minor) sends word from the east coast, "I am currently rising third year student at Duke Law School, and I will be spending my summer at a litigation firm in Raleigh."

- Brian Arnfelt ’12, ’13 (minor) Brian graduated from Northwestern in 2012 with a B.S. in Communication Studies and minors in Legal Studies and the Business Institutions Program, and also received an M.A. in Sports Administration in 2013 from Northwestern's School of Professional Studies. While at Northwestern, Brian cites the Legal Studies program as his first introduction to the legal profession and a major influence on his decision to attend law school. "My favorite class was 'Law and Society,' because Professor Nielsen made the topic captivating while also accessible and fun at the same time." After his time at Northwestern, Brian played professional football for the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. Following the NFL, Brian graduated with honors from The University of Michigan Law School in December 2017. Brian currently works in Chicago as an attorney at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, where his practice concentrates on complex business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, securities offerings and other general corporate matters. "Northwestern will always be a significant part of my life, and the Legal Studies program was a big part of that experience that I will always be grateful for."
