I have family who attended TU Law. They spoke very highly of it and encouraged me to check it out. Once I did, it wasn’t hard to see that this is a law school on the rise. The small size of the school also appealed to me.
2. What made you interested in pursuing law?
During the two years I was in graduate school after college I worked full-time for an LSC legal services agency. My favorite part of any job I’ve ever had was accompanying the attorneys there to court. I had always though that I wanted to go to law school but that experience solidified it for me.
3. Where did you do your undergraduate studies and what did you study?
I left my home state of Maine to do my undergrad at Occidental College in Los Angeles. It was a culture shock in the best possible way. I majored in History and minored in Politics- two very practical subjects.
4. What are you looking forward to/excited about this semester?
As crazy as it sounds, and as much as I’m sure to end up eating these words in a month or two, I’m excited to work hard. I enjoy putting in 12+ hour days and I know this first year, and first semester in particular, will demand a lot of hard work. Again, I’m sure I’ll regret saying this later.
5. What class sounds most interesting to you this semester and why?
Torts is a class I’m very much excited about. A lot of the people I know that have gone through law school say that Torts was among the most interesting of their first year classes. Plaintiffs work is also something I’m interested in so that also makes it appealing.
6. What is one fun fact about yourself?
I’ve skied on four continents
