I really learned the importance of networking here. Almost every opportunity I’ve had has been through a professor or graduate I’ve connected with. I cannot say enough about the alumni here; they are truly amazing.
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.
