Madeline knows she wants to become a lawyer so she decided to seek out the ideal combination for her undergraduate academic work. Along with her major in philosophy, she chose to minor in conflict resolution, which will give her experience in negotiation, mediation and facilitation. “It gives me an opportunity to specialize in an important field as an undergraduate,” Madeline says. “As a lawyer, being able to mediate and resolve problems is important.”
One of the high points of her time at North Central was traveling to Washington, D.C., to conduct research with a team of peers on how oral arguments are presented before the U.S. Supreme Court. While there she met Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Sonia M. Sotomayor. “It was an amazing experience and I recommend it to anyone,” Madeline adds.
