Justine N. Eldridge is a native San Diegan who developed a passion for travel and global cultures from a young age. Her love of international travel has lead to a fascination with international legal issues particularly as they affect women and children. In 2011, she won third place in the California State Bar International Law Student Writing Competition for her paper on women’s rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran. In addition to San Diego, she has lived in Spain and Italy, and received a B.A. in Languages from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque (a highly underrated city if you ask her). She hopes to attend business school after law school because she is a perpetual student and apparently loves amassing student loan debt. Her passions include traveling (obviously), running, good movies, good food, and good wine.
