Karisa Flores

"My experience at The John Marshall Law School and my involvement with the Latino Law Students Association and the Hispanic National Bar Association allowed me to contribute to both the Latino and legal communities. John Marshall and both associations played intricate roles in my legal development and prepared me for a bright legal career."

During her third-year at John Marshall, Karisa Flores (J.D. '07) was elected to a one-year term as regional president of the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) Law School Division. In that capacity, she was responsible for organizing the annual fundraiser, which was a networking event open to all law schools in the Chicago area. She also oversaw the HNBA activities at law schools in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin, and she sat on the Board of Governors for the HNBA Law School Division.

While attending John Marshall, Flores volunteered and interned with the Cook County State's Attorney's Office; she worked as a legal intern with the U.S. Department of Justice in its Office of International Affairs; and as a law clerk with Ganan & Shapiro, P.C.
