3L Spotlight: Stephanie Rosienski

Stephanie Rozienski
Meet Stephanie Rosienski. Stephanie Rosienski graduated from DePaul University College of Law this May. The E-Pulse had an opportunity to speak with Stephanie about her experiences at DePaul Law, her interest in Health Law, and advice she has for current law students.  

Stephanie’s interest in law began in High School where she was involved in the school’s debate team. The debate team gave her the opportunity to deal with policy issues and participate in public forum debates with other students.  Her time with the debate team sparked her passion for problem solving and her interest in reading, research, and writing. After High School, Stephanie attended Butler University in Indiana. At Butler, she double-majored in Political Science and History. Her academic background helped to ground a more solid foundation in critical reading, analytical thinking, and writing which are all necessary skills for the practice of law. In addition to her studies, Stephanie was involved with the Student Government Association at school and participated in Club Lacrosse. Stephanie’s experiences at Butler illustrate her well-rounded nature and willingness to have a positive impact on people’s lives. Upon graduating from Butler, Stephanie worked at Applied Resources, a successful Staffing and recruiting agency in Chicago. Her work experience together with her educational background and passion for policy and problem solving guided her to the field of law where she found her home, DePaul.

As a student of the law, Stephanie wishes to work in an area that is constantly growing and where she can have the potential to impact the lives of many. This has contributed to her interest in Health Law where she has been able to foster connections with health care professionals and develop her understanding of the field of Health Law thanks to DePaul’s Jaharis Health Law Institute.  

Throughout her time at DePaul, Stephanie’s favorite class has been Mediation taught by Professor Katheryn Dutenhaver. She recommends the class for other students at DePaul because Mediation is a practical skill all lawyers should have, and it is a crucial tool that will help lawyers better meet the demands of their clients and work towards their best interests. Stephanie also enjoyed her Health Care Fraud and Abuse class with Professor Schostok, where she was able to make a connection with a guest lecturer at the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). This connection proved to be quite beneficial for it lead to Stephanie’s current position as a law clerk as well as the offering of a general counsel staff attorney position with IDFPR. Stephanie has accepted the position and will begin working for IDFPR later this year.  

Currently, Stephanie plans on preparing for the bar exam this upcoming July and will be studying hard while also taking lots of relaxing trips to the beach with her dog. She thanks DePaul for three great years and looks forward to developing her skills in the promising legal career ahead of her. The E-Pulse congratulates Stephanie on her great achievement and wishes her the best in the upcoming year.​
