Experience

As the newest member of the VBLH&C team, Anne Schneider brings with her a talent for writing, a thirst for knowledge, and a love of reading, writing, and research – an ideal combination for a young litigator.

Anne’s experience rests primarily in employment law, where she has worked on matters involving unpaid wages, minimum wage and overtime violations, FMLA, ERISA, employment contracts, breach of contract, shareholder derivative actions, and employment discrimination claims under Title VII, ADEA, and ADA. She has experience handling litigation matters brought before Federal Court in the Northern District of Illinois, before Illinois State Courts, and before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Anne gained experience and insight into employment law when she served as a law clerk for the Fair Labor Standards Hearings Unit at the Illinois Department of Labor. While there, Anne researched, analyzed, and drafted memoranda and judicial opinions on issues involving equal pay, minimum wage, overtime, and prevailing wage under the Illinois Fair Labor Standards Act. She attended hearings before Administrative Law Judges and before Circuit Court Judges, and participated in field investigations of potential violations of the IFSA.

Anne’s passion for the American worker and for people struggling to make a life for themselves in the United States took root while she attended DePaul University College of Law. In addition to clerking with the Illinois Department of Labor, Anne worked as a student clinician at the DePaul Immigration & Asylum Legal Clinic where she worked tirelessly counseling clients and developing the best strategy to help them accomplish their immigration goals. She conducted extensive research on deportability, asylum, I-751, VAWA, and U-Visa, and skillfully guided clients through the process, frequently working with translators in preparing the necessary documentation.

Also at DePaul, Anne worked as a Student Public Interest Coordinator, developing and planning presentations on legal careers in the public interest sector, keeping in step with DePaul’s Vincentian mission of “serving the underserved.”

Anne completed her undergraduate studies at the James Madison College of Public Affairs at Michigan State University where she received her Bachelor of Arts degrees in International Relations and Political Theory, and Constitutional Democracy. She received her Juris Doctor from DePaul University College of Law where she served as Staff Writer and Articles Editor for the DePaul Rule of Law Journal.
