Just starting off her legal career, Stephanie is the newest member to the Cotman IP team. Currently a full-time student, she attends California State University Los Angeles where she is studying in the Political Science program.
Realizing early on in her life that she had a passion for government and politics, she decided to turn that passion into a career in the legal profession. She enrolled in Riverside City College in 2012 and began studying in their Paralegal Studies program. During her second year at RCC, Stephanie joined the school’s Pre-Law Society club and was appointed the club’s Secretary. As Secretary, she was responsible for scheduling the meetings, informing all club members of upcoming events, and helped to organize the Club’s annual Law Forum, which allowed student’s the opportunity to talk to Alumni and Admissions Officers from various Law Schools throughout California.
Stephanie graduated from Riverside City College in 2014, earning her Associates in Science Degree in Paralegal Studies and was awarded the honor of being placed on the Dean’s List for her academic achievements. Now in her final semester at Cal State Los Angeles, she will be graduating in the Spring with her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science, with a focus in Pre-Legal Studies. After graduation Stephanie will be continuing her education and plans to enroll in Law School within the next year.
