She spent her 1L summer in Pittsburgh working remotely for the Platform to Protect Whistleblowers in Africa. In her free time, Lauren does CrossFit, runs, and spoils her Chihuahua, Geno.
Bridgette Slater (2L & 3rd-year JD/MBA) - Events Coordinator
Bridgette Slater (JD/MBA 2022) studied Biomedical Engineering with a secondary in the Classics at Harvard College, graduating in 2015. Between college and law school, she worked at Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in the Chicago office. During her time at BCG, she took an unpaid leave of absence to work on the Clinton campaign in Fall 2016. Her passion for ethical supply chain sourcing, particularly of agricultural products, developed during one of her college courses, “Chocolate, Culture, and the Politics of Food.” This intersection of human rights and business inspired her pursuit of a joint degree.
