 Joe is a 1L and our Academic Chair. Joe's a New Englander with a lot of love for the Midwest. In undergrad at Oberlin, he studied politics and economics and worked on the campaigns and in the offices of four LGBTQ politicians. After graduating, Joe moved home to the Boston area and worked for four years as an economist focused on transportation policy. When not studying, he's probably deep in his record collection, reading about politics or cars online, or, if he's lucky, sailing.  Contact info: jdcondon@umich.edu

 Michael is a 1L and the Outlaw's 1L Rep. He was born and raised in China, where he finished the first two years of college. He then relocated to the West Coast of this strange country in 2016, where he was converted into a boba lover and a social justice warrior. Before coming to the U.S., he was living in the far away land of Quebec. In his free time, (or when I am seriously procrastinating) he enjoys playing volleyball, rewatching Sex and the City, and freaking out internally about not having a driver’s license. I'd give anything for someone to take me on a Costco run.  Contact info: mikeyxu@umich.edu
