What Global and International Studies Did for this Alum?

Neoshia RoemerNeoshia R. Roemer is a leader, a mentor, a coach, an educator, a legal scholar, and she is helping to create a more humane and brilliant society. She is an excellent example of a Global and International Studies alum in action.

After earning her B.A. in Global and International Studies and History, Neoshia Roemer attended the University of New Mexico where she earned her M.A. in Latin American Studies and graduated law school, cum laude, with her J.D, concentrating in Indian Law.

Neoshia became a Fellow then Staff Attorney, at the Indigenous Law and Policy Center at Michigan State University’s Law School, where she mentored students, coached moot court teams, and advanced her legal scholarship. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Idaho College of Law where she teaches family law along with other courses in the Native American Law Program.

The Liberal Arts courses Neoshia took as an undergraduate helped her tremendously along the way. Neoshia gained invaluable tools as a Liberal Arts major through class work and other opportunities, including networking with professors. Neoshia’s undergraduate classes prepared her for both graduate and professional school, as well as for her career as a lawyer and legal scholar. She was encouraged to explore her own intellectual curiosity, even in times of discomfort—advice that she readily hands students today. Neoshia is a testament to the power of a liberal arts education and how studies and coursework pave a pathway to meaningful success.
