I was surprised by how engaged and supportive my professors were. They truly went above and beyond—from when Professors Ted Janger and Susan Herman invited us to their homes for dinner to when Professor Cynthia Godsoe asked me to co-author an article.
I am most proud of my work with the Criminal Defense and Advocacy Clinic. The clinic evolved my lawyering skills immensely and expanded my knowledge about gender justice and best practices when interviewing and communicating with people who have experienced trauma.
