Whitney Wilkinson

About Whitney: I spent the summer between undergraduate school and law school working at the law firm of Canton, Johnson and Johnson PC. Growing up in Lewistown, IL, my neighbors were lawyers and I thought their jobs were fascinating. My mother was always there to help motivate me in my educational goals, and with that support, along with my enjoyment of interning with my neighbors, I decided to go to law school.

Why did you choose NIU Law? I chose NIU Law because I visited the campus and felt comfortable here, knowing that the professors have an open door policy and they are truly here to help.

What activities do you want to be involved in? I plan to get involved in the Illinois Student Bar Association while at NIU Law and after graduation, I hope to continue working in the field of Family Law.
