Luke Angelillo is a junior concentrating in History and Political Science with a focus on American politics. On campus he serves as a staff writer for the Brown Political Review, a History DUG Leader, and a senior editor for the Brown Journal of History. Each opportunity has helped him develop strong writing and communication skills. These experiences proved to be especially valuable this past summer when he worked as an intern for Senator Richard J. Durbin. As a native of Wheaton, Illinois, Luke commuted from home to the senator’s Chicago office, often spending his train rides taking LSAT practice tests. Luke plans to attend law school following graduation and eventually practice constitutional law with the dream of becoming a federal judge. As an avid basketball fan, he also hopes to one day play a game of pickup on the court above the Supreme Court chambers.
