Hey! My name is Deborah Mathew and I'm a 3L. I'm from Columbus, Ohio but was born in Kuwait. I went to Ohio State for undergrad and majored in Political Science. I'm interested in practicing immigration law after I graduate. I'm excited to meet our new members and hope to see you at our events!

My name is Ethan Han and I am currently a 2L interested in studying health law.  I am from Paramus, NJ and attended the University of Michigan for my undergrad (c/o 2010).  I love to do anything that involves moving and running around -- football, basketball, swimming, running, biking, etc.  As you can imagine, studying isn't on that list of activities but more likely than not, you can find me in the law library reading room or basement doing some work and catching up on reading.  If you see me, come say hi!  

Other interests include corny jokes (the cornier the better), food (I exercise so I can eat more), and animals (I was an aspiring veterinarian my freshman year of college).

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi all, I'm currently a 2L exploring potential interests in a couple different areas of law, including corporate and energy law. I grew up as a bit of a nomad, having lived in seven states and three countries. Prior to moving here for law school, I most recently lived in Boston where I completed my undergraduate education at Boston University. I'm excited to meet and work with our members, new and old, at various events this year!
