» Kristin Houg: The First Legal Extern for the Anaheim Angels
Kristin was the Networking Chair for the Entertainment & Sports Law Society for two years at Chapman, where she participated in all events coordinated by the society. “It was important for us to spread the word about Chapman’s Entertainment Law Emphasis program, which is really taking off," she said. "I met a lot of very interesting professionals along the way, including former Angel Tim Salmon," she added.
Kristin plans to work as an in-house corporate attorney. “I would love to end up working for a [baseball] club at some point,” she noted. On her experience at Chapman, she pointed out: “I plan to be an active alumnus and participate in events as much as I can, including speaking on panels. Of course, I would love to speak in the Entertainment & Sports area, if I am lucky enough to get a job in this field!” Not only has Kristin had the opportunity to extern in the area of her "dream job," she expressed great pride in her role in helping to establish the first externship program with the Angels. “Now future law students can have the same opportunity that I did,” she said. According to Professor Larmore, Kristin's efforts have already opened doors, as Courtney Lewis ('09) is scheduled to be the Angels' next Chapman extern.
