I am originally from Brooklyn and moved to Chicago in 2014 to study history at the University of Chicago.

Born and raised in Connecticut, I moved to Chicago for college and stayed for law school. I have been on the JLSA board all three years in law school and am excited to continue fostering Jewish community on campus.
Rachel Katzin
PresidentHometown: Boca Raton, Florida
Through serving as a JLSA 1L Representative during the 2019-2020 school year, I learned the importance of maintaining a tight-knit Jewish community in law school. As the 2020-2021 UChicago JLSA President, my aim is to provide a religious and cultural home to our students, while also facilitating engaging Jewish legal events and programs. Before law school, I completed my undergraduate education at Washington University in St. Louis, and following law school, I plan to go back to the east coast to work in either New York or Washington, D.C.

I was born in New York City and raised in Westchester County; in 2016, I graduated from Tufts University with a B.A. in international relations and Spanish. I then worked for two years in the New York State Attorney General's Office. During my time at the Law School, I traveled to Israel and the West Bank with iTrek, and as a 2L I was JLSA's Programming Chair. I'm excited to continue representing the Law School's Jewish community as JLSA Vice President!
