Mario Treto, Indiana University Maurer School of Law

94 Views
In 2007, Treto graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with an AB in Biology and Psychology and immediately entered the work force as an Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Washington University. According to Treto, working for two years prior to entering law school allowed him to enjoy a break from studying while also building other crucial skills. While working in the Office of Admissions, Treto visited high school students around the nation to discuss their college options. While in his office at the university, he had the opportunity to present information about the school to visitors, examine student applications, and contribute to decisions that would impact future alumni of his alma mater. According to Treto, the time spent in the Admissions Office allowed him to gain a better understanding of how his legal studies would be applied to a work setting in the future.

Since entering Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 2009, Treto has learned that a JD can be applied to lots of areas that are both legal and non-legal. “Rather than restricting your future, going to law school will only give you more options. I have been pretty involved in the community and have used as many resources as I can,” says Treto. He has been involved in student groups with both legal and non-legal focuses, thus establishing new relationships and taking advantage of networking opportunities.

He has served at the president of the Latino Law Student Association and has also been involved with the Federal Communications Law Journal, Moot Court, the Protective Order Project, the Intellectual Property Association, the Hispanic Bar Association, and the Health Law Society.
