Parastoo Majd graduated cum laude from Salmon P. Chase College of Law in 2016. However, her experience in the legal field began at an early age. In college, Parastoo worked as a legal assistant at a top Plaintiff’s firm in Louisville and spent her free time shadowing lawyers based on her passionate interest in the field. During law school, Parastoo gained invaluable experience as a law clerk in administrative law and civil defense. She served as an active member of the Moot Court Board – she has competed nationally several times – the Student Bar Association, and the Chase Ambassador Program. A hard worker by nature, Parastoo gained the trust of faculty and students alike. She spent several hours volunteering to help incoming students with questions they faced and even sat on the faculty interview board for prospective professors.
As an immigrant of Iranian descent, Parastoo’s passion for the legal field sprung from her desire to better the lives of those with limited means. With a background in multiple languages and political science, she thought the legal field would be the best way for her to do this.
In her free time, Parastoo enjoys traveling, trying new foods, collecting vintage clothing, and spending time with her family and friends.
