Sarah Yohay Eaquinto

In her third year at GGU Law, Sarah was elected by her peers to serve as Secretary of the Student Bar Association, the President of GGU's Veterans' Law Student Association and as GGU School Representative for the Northern California Law Students Veterans' Coalition.

Sarah holds a B.A. in Economics and Legal Studies from Claremont McKenna College (2008), and a Paralegal Certification from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).


Sarah has been a part of the U.S. Army Reserve for the past five years, enlisted as a 68M Nutrition Care Specialist with A. Co. 352d Combat Support Hospital in Mountain View. Sarah also served as an Army JAG Corps intern for her 2L summer and plans to pursue a career as a JAG attorney in the future.

During her career, Sarah found herself amazed by the amount of military aid and missions that are humanitarian in nature. "It is truly public interest work on a global scale."

Law School Highlights

"1st STEP with Professor Porter was an outstanding experience because I really enjoyed learning from someone who has already been through the JAG Corps, and has been trained to work in a very regimented way. I also enjoyed International Law of Armed Conflicts with Adjunct Professor Warren Small. It's a great class for any student who has interest in military justice and international humanitarian law."

The Future

"I am excited to be applying for active duty and will remain in the military for the foreseeable future. The Army JAG Corps presents amazing opportunities to learn different areas of law and to build incredibly diverse skills as a new attorney. Though my priorities may change as my husband and I build a family, the Army JAG Corps is by far the best career path for me right now because it will ensure that we can live and travel together while being successful in our respective careers."
