Joshua Lacoste

Josh is from Metairie, Louisiana. He graduated magna cum laude from Tulane University in 2020 with majors in Finance and Legal Studies in Business and a minor in Political Science. He is a student cohort member of the Notre Dame Religious Liberty Clinic, Sorin Fellow in the de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture, and Research Assistant to Professor Randy Kozel. Josh split his 1L summer as a judicial intern to The Honorable Martin L.C. Feldman and The Honorable Lance M. Africk of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. After his 2L year, he was a Summer Associate at Kirkland & Ellis in Chicago. Upon graduation, he will serve as a law clerk to The Honorable Federico A. Moreno of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. In his free time, Josh enjoys hitting the pew and the lab, watching Notre Dame football, spelling words with an o as “eaux”, walking around the on-campus lakes, listening to Bad Bunny and other Latin pop stars, and trying coffee spots in South Bend so he can get his Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Iced Carmel Macchiatos with Almond Milk, and the girliest drinks he can find. He is, however, adamant that fried catfish is a junk food, as its protein-to-carb ratio does not meet the standard for gainz. Lastly, if you ever see Josh down and want to cheer him up, show him a clip of the minions from the Despicable Me movies and you’ll be sure to get that contagious, nervous laughter of his. Those yellow dudes just drive him nuts.
