Jenna Ellis’ Career

Jenna Ellis Studied Law

During criminal proceedings against her assailant, Ellis found a mentor in Robert Shapiro, then the DA for Boulder, Colorado. Shapiro is one of the famous lawyers who successfully defended O.J. Simpson.

“I have always been interested in law, but through my interactions with Rob, I was able to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of criminal law,” said Ellis. “The impact he had on me was so great that once my case concluded, I began to volunteer for the district attorney’s office as a victim advocate.”

She went to Cedarville University in 2003. There, Ellis used the financial award from her civil case to set up a scholarship for other students.
