 Joe is a 2L 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

 Richard is a 1L and one of Outlaws’ 1L reps. He was born on base in Fort Benning, GA (Army brats where you at?) and grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. After a wonderfully warm sojourn getting an AB in Public Policy at Duke University and doing postgrad research on migration in South Texas, he found himself right back in the mitten for law school. After these three years, Richard will be joining the Army JAG corps to complete his service obligation, and after THAT, the sky’s the limit. In his free time (while not napping or procrastinating), Richard enjoys all things performance, hitting the gym, playing portal 2 with friends, and getting into nature.

 Michael is a 2L and one of the Development Chairs for 2018-2019 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
