Service defines DePaul law grad

Alexandra Hochhauser, the 2013 DePaul College of Law student commencement speaker and Student Bar Association (SBA) president, could write the book on how to best serve your classmates and school.

“I feel if you are going to law school without a purpose, then why even go?” she said. “I knew before I started law school that I wanted to be involved in student government. That was one of the reasons I chose DePaul. It has a commitment to service.”

Along with SBA vice president Pete Chambers, Hochhauser helped establish an advising program for students and re-launched the college’s student newspaper. Hochhauser said they also found a way to give student organizations more funding for the year.

“She led the student body and was a great advocate for them” said William Chamberlain, dean of Law Career Services who worked with Hochhauser. “She’s very thoughtful and has a very positive attitude. She’s been a very effective leader and has really helped the law school.”
