Bio

For Nune, the decision to come to and stay at McGeorge was easy because of the multi-award winning Trial Advocacy program and top-ranked competition teams. She exclaims, "I have known that I wanted to attend law school my entire adult life  because I know that in order to make any kind of positive impact, we first need to equip ourselves with the necessary tools."

Nune initially chose McGeorge because of its prestigious International Law Program. However, with all the opportunities McGeorge makes available, she also developed great interest in Criminal Law and Trial Advocacy. Both of these fields are highly regarded at McGeorge and taught by some of the best law school professors in the nation. Nune shares, "the best thing about McGeorge are the professors. I think every student at McGeorge has at least one professor who has gone out of their way to help them with different matters."  

Nune is of Armenian descent and speaks Armenian fluently. Her support system has been her parents. She professes, "they are my heroes because of their work ethic, loyalty, generosity, and courage."  

Because of her Armenian heritage, Nune and her family were significantly impacted by the Armenian Genocide. Nune admits, "Seeing leaders like Obama fail to keep their campaign promise to call the slaughter of 1.5 million Armenians what it was-- a genocide-- because of pressure from the Turkish government was very concerning. Making matters even worse, more genocide was taking place in different parts of the world and again, being ignored."  

Before coming to McGeorge, she also explored other options by going to D.C. and completing a fellowship with the Armenian National Committee of America. She has also worked for the State Department at United States Embassy in Madrid, Spain. Following that opportunity, she worked at the Office of the Human Rights Defender (Ombudsman) for the Republic of Armenia. These experiences have helped guide Nune to her chosen career path, and as a lawyer she will effectively help make the changes she hopes to see in the world.
