Reina Fostyk focuses her legal learning and practice on a variety of public interest style work. She is currently working at MSU Immigration Law Clinic, primarily representing unaccompanied minors.
Reina graduated from Malone University in Canton, Ohio with a B.A. in History, and minors in Political Science and English. In the process of earning her degree, Reina also did a study abroad in Uganda, where she nearly drowned while rafting the Nile River! Her coursework and experiences during undergrad led to her passion to see faith groups in the community come together to work for social justice.
At MSU Law, Reina is a member of the Michigan State Law Review. She also serves as the Student Liaison for the Anti-Trafficking Legal Advocacy Society (ATLAS) and as the Secretary for the Public Interest Law Society. In her spare time, she enjoys participating in nearly any outdoor activity with her husband, traveling abroad to experience the beauty of other cultures, watching documentaries, and reading.
