Creative Thinker Focused on Advising Companies on FCPA
Rosalie Gambrah joins the Business Law Scholars program with the goal of becoming a white collar/FCPA lawyer with a focus on international corporations, advising clients on compliance, and handling investigations.
Prior to law school, Rosalie worked at Baker McKenzie as a Project Assistant in the Corporate & Securities practice group before being promoted to the Legal Project Management team. As a Legal Project Coordinator, she examined legal issues and projects with a wide-angle lens, synthesizing her corporate and project management backgrounds. From managing mid-size legal projects independently to actively contributing to a firm’s innovation and legal tech strategy, Rosalie has an intimate understanding of how projects develop in addition to how a firm operates as a business.
As someone who is passionate about cultivating environments that promote inclusivity, Rosalie served as Northwestern’s Student Body Vice President during her senior year. A crucial initiative she championed was reclassifying Economics as a STEM major, giving international students additional opportunities to enter the H1-B visa lottery. During undergrad, she also completed coursework to earn a Leadership Certificate. This program strengthened her leadership skills by exposing her to different scenarios where she gained perspective on how to assume personal responsibility, take initiative, and effectuate change.
