Sarah B


Sarah is a native Texan raised on good barbecue and Tex-Mex. She double majored in English and Legal Studies at the University of California, Berkeley where she graduated with a 3.91/4.0 GPA, High Distinction in General Scholarship, and membership in Phi Beta Kappa. Her honors thesis on public perception of the U.S. death penalty earned her the Highest Honors distinction in Legal Studies. Sarah then moved from the Bay Area to New York City where she worked as a Corporate Secretary and Legal Project Assistant at the Manhattan office of Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp. Convinced by her phenomenal colleagues that lawyers could lead full and happy lives, she eagerly applied to 16 law schools and is now a JD candidate at Yale Law School. Her practice area interests are corporate law and international human rights law.

Sarah has served as a guide to students in various roles. At UC Berkeley, she mentored a student in the Pilipino Community and served as a Resident Assistant in a co-ed undergraduate dorm. She also served as the Editor-in-Chief of {m}aganda magazine, a student-run Pilipino literary arts publication. At Yale Law School, she will mentor incoming 1L (first year) students as a Dean’s Advisor starting in Fall 2019. Sarah has edited personal statements and essays for law school, medical school, fellowship, and college applications.

When she’s not catching up on law school readings, Sarah loves to cook, watch movies, and spend far too long wandering around in art museums.
