"The faculty at the Brandeis School of Law not only motivate students to succeed in the classroom, but encourage students to explore areas of the law that we would not otherwise consider. I returned to my home state of Kentucky to attend law school with every intention of practicing commercial law after graduation. However, through the guidance of professors and staff who seemed to recognize my interest areas before I did and their open door policy and eagerness to talk to students about our careers, I was encouraged to broaden my focus. Now I am excited about exploring opportunities in estate planning, utility law, health law, and commercial law. The faculty and staff who share their experiences in the classroom have certainly impacted my future plans, and I am so grateful for the time they take to share their expertise.

 

Beyond the classroom, extracurricular activities at UofL Law are preparing me to be a leader. My experience competing in the National Health Law Moot Court Competition and National Client Counseling Competition have helped me develop practical skills. Similarly, family and divorce mediation training, writing for a law journal, working with a legal clinic, and attending networking events both in the Louisville community and outside of Kentucky have given me the opportunity not only to develop skills, but focus my interests and make connections with practitioners. I am proud and honored to attend the Brandeis School of Law and I am confident that I will be prepared to begin my legal career after graduation."
