Three Law Students Receive Faegre Baker Daniels' 2014 Diversity & Inclusion Fellowships

Faegre Baker Daniels LLP has awarded its 2014 Diversity & Inclusion Fellowships to Joy Chung, Ruben Gonzalez and Regina Moore, second-year law students at Washington University School of Law, University of Notre Dame Law School and University of Iowa College of Law, respectively. Each student will receive a $10,000 stipend and a 2014 summer associate position at FaegreBD.

FaegreBD's Diversity & Inclusion Fellowships support the firm's commitment to increasing diversity in the legal profession by providing hands-on legal experience to second-year law students who are committed to contributing meaningfully to diversity and inclusion in the profession. Each recipient will join our 10-week summer clerkship, participate in formal education and training programs, and be matched with a mentor lawyer.

Chung, who will work in FaegreBD's Denver office, was a summer associate with Medtronic Inc. and a Minneapolis law firm in 2013. At Washington University School of Law, she is staff editor for the Journal of Law and Policy, coordinates speaker outreach for the Black Law Students Association and serves as alumnae liaison for the Women's Law Caucus.

Before law school, Chung was a literacy instructor at City of Lakes AmeriCorps, where she redesigned sixth grade math and language arts curriculum to meet the needs of multilingual students. While earning a bachelor's degree in international studies and political science at the University of Iowa (2011), Chung successfully worked to increase overall student volunteerism. She also served as an English instructor at a school in Strasbourg, France.

Gonzalez will join FaegreBD's Chicago office. In 2013, he was an Association of Corporate Counsel legal intern with Mondelēz International. Before attending University of Notre Dame Law School, Gonzalez spent more than four years as a consultant with Deloitte Consulting and BAE Systems, advising the Defense and Homeland Security departments on cost containment and program management. At Deloitte, he was selected as a 2011 GovLab Innovation Fellow and presented a co-authored report on disruptive innovation and cost savings in the public sector to European Union and Canadian government officials.

Gonzalez earned a bachelor's degree in political science from George Washington University in 2007 and was a Latin America government affairs intern with Apple Inc. after college. From 2010-12, he was a board member for Imagine Hope Community Charter School in Washington. Gonzalez is fluent in Spanish.

Moore is a former summer intern with the Iowa Public Defender's Office and volunteered with the Orleans Parish District Attorney in 2013. She will work in the firm's Minneapolis office. At the University of Iowa College of Law, Moore writes for the Journal of Corporation Law.

Moore earned a bachelor's degree in law from the University of Sao Paulo in 2006, where she worked in the university's legal clinic. Before relocating to the United States, she was an associate at two Sao Paulo law firms, where she specialized in mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions, project finance, and international capital markets. Fluent in Brazilian Portuguese, Moore was a senior translator with Bretton Woods Translations before attending U.S. law school.
