DEF Spotlight: 2020 Summer Associate Tatiana Mosbey

July 29, 2020 BY DEF Admin


Law School: University of Georgia

Undergrad: Jacksonville State University 

Field(s) of Interest: Currently unknown, but I am looking forward to exploring all of the practice groups at DEF this summer!

Is there anyone who influenced you to become a lawyer? 

My initial influence was my mom. I was interested in the law early on. My mom always wanted me to pursue a career I was interested in and she encouraged me by introducing me to different kinds of lawyers and taking me to law school prep events. Later in life I was strongly influenced by two faculty mentors in undergrad. One was an attorney and the other pursued a PhD, but they both gave me opportunities outside of school to practice skills I will use as a lawyer like scholarly writing and public speaking.

What are some activities you do when you are not studying or working?

I enjoy live music, theater, and classic films. I like to catch shows at the UGA Performing Arts Center when guest performers and artists come to Athens. There’s always a lot of variety from classical pianists to contemporary ballet. I also practice yoga and enjoy hikes and long walks with my family and friends.

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be and why?

If I were a superhero my superpower would be the ability to time travel. I would use this power to go back in time, fact check history, and document all of the stories that never made it into the history books. I would also use this power to go into the future and stop catastrophes from happening.

As our first 1L summer associate, what have you enjoyed the most about your summer at DEF so far?

DEF has many different practice groups and I am lucky that I was able to experience so many different fields as a 1L! Because this is my first time doing legal work I have really enjoyed being able to explore different practice groups and expand my knowledge in new areas. I have also enjoyed the experiential learning opportunities by attending depositions, mediations, and shadowing attorneys.  

What has your favorite class in law school been (and why)?

Torts. The fact patterns were all so strange and interesting to read. The world of torts is massive and complex, and the liability implications for everyday people, like homeowners, to large corporations is something I found thought-provoking.
