Robin Peters teaches the practicum portion of UNLV’s Paralegal program. Peters is a litigation paralegal specializing in pre-litigation insurance claims, case investigation, and complaint drafting. She also assists with motion and trial work. Her experience allows her to discuss in detail these skills and topics with students wishing to enter the legal field as they are essential to paralegals and support staff in all practices.
Peters graduated from University of Nevada, Las Vegas with dual bachelor’s degrees in political science and criminal justice, with emphases in criminology and forensic application in law, constitutional law, and campaigns and elections.
This education sparked her interest in politics and led her to seek a job with a national grassroots foundation. During her time in grassroots as a senior field associate she did get-out-the-vote rounds, canvassed for local candidates and issues, and managed event marketing and planning.
While in school, Peters was the vice president of the Iota Eta chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha, a national fraternity that creates a philanthropic community dedicated to the education and awareness of breast cancer research and elimination. With her sorority, she partnered with the American Cancer Society to help achieve those goals.
Her senior year of college Peters was a congressional intern for a U.S. Senator’s regional office, where she participated in case management and representative assistance.
Peters is passionate about the humane treatment of cats and has over 4,000 hours of community service dedicated to feline neonatal care and socialization through foster work.
