Christina Sand - Legal Assistant

Minneapolis - St. Paul, Twin Cities, Minnesota & Nationwide

Legal Assistant

Christina began working as a Legal Assistant in June of 2015 after graduating summa cum laude from Gustavus Adolphus College, where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies and Political Science. She is currently assigned to our Testosterone and GranuFlo caseloads and also works on a number of individual personal injury cases.

While studying at Gustavus, she interned with Southern Regional Legal Services and spent a summer working for the Child Protections Unit of the Family Services Division in Washington DC. Christina also spent a summer studying abroad in India for a Social Justice, Peace, and Development Studies Program. Armed with that valuable experience, she completed an Honor’s Thesis in Political Science, presenting her work at the 2015 Western Political Science Association Annual Conference. The thesis is titled “Setting Captives Free: Issue Framing and Advocacy by Religious Interest Groups on Human Trafficking”, which Christina is hoping to submit for publication in the spring of 2016.

Outside of work Christina enjoys reading, quilting, running, spending time with family, and keeping up on new developments in culture and politics. Recently, she began donating her time and energy to volunteering at Breaking-Free, a local organization that provides support services to female survivors of human trafficking and exploitation. In the near future, her altruism will expand to the animal world when she adopts a new cat or kitten from an animal shelter.
