Daniel Rojas, JD '12:
May 9, 2013 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Join us for an engaging conversation with Daniel Rojas, JD '12, a recent graduate who will return to campus to speak about his work enforcing workers' rights and his experiences as an attorney of color.
Daniel was born and raised in a working-class, ﬁrst-generation immigrant family in South Los Angeles. Daniel chose to go to law school because he wanted to help immigrant families. During his law school career, Daniel volunteered at Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto and interned at the National Immigration Law Center in Washington DC, union-side labor law ﬁrm Davis, Cowell & Bowe in San Francisco, and the National Employment Law Project in Oakland.
Daniel currently works as a Field Attorney for the National Labor Relations Board, where he is responsible for investigating charges of unfair labor practices, litigating cases, conducting elections to determine union representation preferences, and acting as a hearing officer in contested representation matters.
In his spare time, Daniel likes to read Wikipedia articles, watch bad action movies, and talk about Southern California.
