Name: Nathan Coats
College, Graduation Year: University of Washington, 2019
Hello! My name is Nathan and I am a junior at the University of Washington majoring in Economics. I have an interest in attending law school after receiving my baccalaureate degree with the hope of entering in a career in trade law. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, cooking, and reading.
In my experience in NWCLC, I have been given the opportunity to work in a legal setting, to learn more about consumer law and to provide assistance to marginalized communities. In my four weeks of interning in this firm, I have been gaining vast experience in legal research, professional development and organization. Most of the work has been in student loan or mortgage defaults where I have been responsible in drafting bankruptcy petitions, organizing client documents, and contacting clients to resolve case issues. So far, my experience in NWCLC has been incredibly valuable in my pursuit of a career in law. I am very excited for my future at this organization!
