Major: LL.M. in US Law and Policy
Herrin is an experienced and certified senior professional in human resources. Her passion is to educate employers and employees with regard to their rights and obligations, particularly in the areas of immigration, workers’ compensation, and employment law matters.
She graduated with an LL.B degree from Parahyangan Catholic University School of Law, Bandung, Indonesia. After graduation she worked as an In-house counsel and HR Manager in an engineering company and then a multinational furniture company. Since moving to the United States fifteen years ago, Herrin has also worked as a Human Resources Practitioner in various companies such as Aramak, EE Technologies and West Corporation.
Determined to practice law in the US, Herrin decided to get a post graduate degree in US Law and Policy and thereafter take the Nevada or California bar exams. She hopes to concentrate on Immigration Practice, worker’s compensation and Employment Law.
Herrin says she decided to do her postgraduate degree at McGeorge because, in her words, “it was highly recommended by my Professor in my MBA program, who incidentally is a McGeorge alumni. Also, I noticed that many prominent attorneys in the Reno area graduated from McGeorge and then I learned that McGeorge has a variety of experiential learning, legal clinics, and field placements that can contribute to my success in learning the U.S. law.
On how her experience so far has been, Herrin says, “I am excited about volunteering at McGeorge’s annual Immigration Fair and assisting prospective naturalization applicants in achieving their goals. I am also enjoying the classes because of the way the topics are taught which is really fascinating. The faculty members that I have encountered are competent in their field. More importantly, they want to help their students succeed in their learning process. All we need to do is reach out to them.”
Herrin likes to ride bicycles and kayaking when she’s free and her favorite quote is from Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
