Schaab is a proud alumna who received her JD, with highest honors, Order of the Coif, from DePaul in 1998 and served as the managing editor of notes and comments for the DePaul Law Review. Prior to becoming a legal career development professional, she practiced law as a staff attorney at The Pampered Chef, Ltd. She also worked as a litigation associate at Ungaretti & Harris LLP (now Nixon Peabody LLP) and Seyfarth Shaw Fairweather & Geraldson LLP (now Seyfarth Shaw LLP). She spent nearly five years as the law clerk to Judge George M. Marovich in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. While a clerk, she also taught legal research and writing to first-year law students. Schaab’s diverse legal background in private practice, in-house roles, and within the judicial branch gives her a unique perspective in her new role as assistant dean and director of LCS.
Schaab is an active member of both the Chicago Area Law School Consortium and the National Association for Law Placement (NALP). Her articles have been published frequently in the NALP Bulletin. She also has presented on a number of career services-related topics at NALP’s Annual Education Conference and is currently both a Midwest representative on NALP’s Regional Resource Council and a member of its Law School Employment Outcomes Task Force.
