About Josephine Schaut, Paralegal
Josephine Schaut (she/her/hers) graduated from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in 2021 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, Global Studies, and Spanish.
She was able to study abroad in Toledo, Spain, during her undergraduate education. Although shortened by the pandemic, this time allowed her to further her language skills and passion for politics and history in other countries. Prior to working at Bielski Chapman she has interned and worked at various non-profits including The Advocates for Human Rights in Minneapolis, MN and Opportunity America in Washington, D.C. Her education and work experience has increased her passion for immigration and asylum law, human rights and justice, and international relations.
New to the Chicagoland area, Josephine likes to spend her free time exploring the city and what Chicagoland has to offer. Some of her hobbies include running near the lake, baking, trying new restaurants and spending time with her two orange cats, Annie, and Hallie.
In the future, she hopes to either attend law school or receive her master’s degree in International Relations. She would like to start volunteering at nursing homes or animal shelters on the weekends.
