Josh Lawson ‘16
Hometown: Springfield, IL
Major: Legal Studies
Future Plans: Attend Law School
Josh Lawson wants to be a lawyer and possibly run for political office one day. At the University of Illinois Springfield, the legal studies major is getting a taste of political life as the President of the Student Government Association (SGA). Lawson is also president of the Mock Trial team, a member of the Model Illinois Government Moot Court, the Tau Sigma Honor Society and the Pre-Law Society. He also serves his country as a Sergeant in the Illinois Army National Guard. Lawson says he’s found it easier to get involved at UIS because of the right-sized campus.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
