Meet HJP Kent Intern Michael Gerbec

I spent most of my childhood in different parts of Utah, but I spent most of my childhood in a small town called Logan, about twenty miles from the Idaho border. After graduating high school in 2009, I went to Gonzaga University in Spokane. There, I spent four years earning a dual degree in history and Latin with a minor in English. It was there that I got my exposure to philosophy and social justice that has brought me to where I am today.

I started studying at the University of Washington School of Law as soon as I graduated Gonzaga, and have just finished my second year. I have a passion for social justice law and hope eventually to go into LGBT rights, particularly transgender protections. With any luck, I will become a litigator once I’ve left law school in 2016. Besides school (which consumes most of my life), I enjoy rock climbing, hockey, rugby, playing my saxophone, and reading a good book. I also have the pleasure of marrying the man of my dreams this August, so the rest of my summer will likely be split between defending people from eviction and figuring out seating charts.
