Joshua Nadreau ’13
Joshua Nadreau found his niche on his final co-op. “With an undergrad degree in sports management, I came to law school interested in labor and employment,” says Josh. With that in mind, he enrolled in related electives, and completed three co-ops in line with his professional goals. For his final co-op, Josh wanted to round out his skills with civil litigation experience at Sugarman, Rogers, Barshak & Cohen. But then, the unexpected occurred: “I was on a path to labor law, but on my final co-op, I discovered that I was drawn to the pace and more adversarial climate of civil litigation.”
And, the firm, which was looking to hire a more seasoned associate, was so impressed with Josh’s performance that they offered him a post-graduate job. “It’s amazing but I never interviewed with them other than for my co-op,” says Josh, who now puts his trial and labor expertise together as a partner with Fisher Phillips, where he specializes in labor and employment litigation. “I got my job as a direct result of co-op."
