Matt Schreiber chose ONU for the programs it offers. He stays involved as a staff editor of Law Review, the secretary for Street Law, and a member of the Jessup Moot Court Team. He recently went to a competition in Chicago with his team and describes his experience as a lot of work but a very helpful one overall. He praises the ONU professors for their open-door policy and willingness to help students find their passion in the field of law.
He is currently pursuing both the LLM and JD at the same time. As an undergraduate, he encountered a class that dealt with genocide that opened his eyes to what goes on in developing nations and post-conflict countries. This sparked an interest that has lead to his current path. He would like to work in the rule of law field and help nations build their legal and political infrastructures. He came to ONU knowing that he had the opportunity to earn his LLM in international law and then use that degree and knowledge he’s gained here to work with developmental programs to really boost the rule of law.
“Getting involved here is a key part of your education,” he says. “If I just focused on my classes, I wouldn’t be getting the same experiences at all. Being involved has really helped me get the information that I want to get.”
