Elizabeth Gaod ’17

Labor Relations and Human Resource Management Major/Pre-Law Minor

Elizabeth is a paralegal with the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch. “Human resources deals a lot with labor laws, so minoring in pre-law allowed me to focus more on topics like business law, ethics, and law and society. This expanded my options when applying for jobs.

“I am employed by the State Of Connecticut Judicial Branch as a paralegal. In this position I work in the court room clerking for the judge, processing and coding documents, and prepping for cases. Some days I am in the Putnam Superior courthouse and other days I am in the Danielson Superior courthouse.

“I prepare a plethora of legal documents and assist the public with questions they may have dealing with their cases. I also spend time in the clerk’s office, doing administrative work, answering phone calls and helping customers.

“Other experiences that prepped me for success in the workplace was my semester-long group project in Dr. Pandey’s Human Resources class. It was a great introduction to working with others in a more professional environment (at General Cable) and it gave me confidence when I was applying to jobs.”
