Jocelyn Rosillo: Vol. 44 Lead Technical Editor

Jocelyn Rosillo is a third year law student at the Shepard Broad College of Law and Lead Technical Editor for the Nova Law Review.  Her duties include oversight of Bluebook citations, below-the-line edits, and all technical aspects of the publication.  She also coordinates the Summer Candidacy Program to instruct incoming junior associates on the editing process and chairs the annual Bluebook Interactive Citation Workshops to reviewing citation skills with first year students.



Jocelyn is an advocate for NSU's Trial Association (NTA) and the Moot Court Society and is also a member of the Hispanic Student Bar Association.  She has competed in the Honorable E. Earle Zehmer Memorial Mock Trial Competition in 2018 and 2019, and had a stellar performance as a Semifinalist in the National Trial Competition hosted by the Texas Young Lawyers Association in 2020.



Jocelyn is interested in the field of criminal litigation.  This past summer, she interned with the Broward State Attorney's Office as a Certified Legal Intern.  Jocelyn participated in court hearings, jury trials, bench trials, and motions.  "The [internship] gave me the hands-on experience I longed for. Being able to handle real cases while actively participating in a courtroom was an invaluable and incomparable learning experience."  She has fulfilled her aspiration to become a  prosecutor once she graduates from law school by accepting a position with the State Attorney for the 17th Judicial Circuit in Broward.  Jocelyn has lived in Venezuela, Canada, and currently lives in South Florida with her family and her cat, Junior.
