Jean Schoor (ficticious)

Jean is a student who grew up in Akron, Ohio. As an undergraduate, she majored in Political Science, and she was engaged in many public interest extra-curricular activities. She was the philanthropy chair of her sorority, and, in this position, she organized a large blood donation drive, a musical play that donated all proceeds to a local charity, and a food drive for a local food bank. She is undecided about the path of her future career, but she believes that she would like to start out by working in a local nonprofit agency. She believes she would like her work to involve advocacy on behalf of a particular societal group such as children or the elderly. In addition to exploring her interest in public interest law, she wants to prepare to take a bar exam and learn professional skills.
