What was your experience with MSU Law?
The biggest strength of the Law College is how easy it is to interact and have time with the professors. Without them and their open door policy, it may have been a lot tougher digesting some of the minute nuances of the law. Having such great accessibility to the professors is one strength the Law College carries. The Clinical programs at the Law College provide firsthand experience on what it takes to successfully manage numerous clients in the areas of tax law, corporate law, landlord-tenant law, and immigration law, to name a few. The skills I developed in the clinic have directly transferred over into my success handling clients in a large law firm.

How did extracurricular activities influence your success?
I suggest you become actively engaged in extracurricular activities. The extracurricular activities at Michigan State Law College, from the journals to the Legal Clinics to the student organizations, all beneficially shape you further in your development as a successful future attorney due to the hands-on approach.

What advice would you offer to those thinking about a career in law?
If you are going to attend law school and want to become a lawyer, then do it whole-heartedly. Give the law everything you have. It is only three years. And three years of hard work will pay off down the road as an alumni from Michigan State University College of Law.

Is there any additional insight you would like to share?
Many people enter law school with some reservations concerning if they have what it takes. Do not be afraid of law school. We all entered law school without much, if any, knowledge of the law. And, after attending Michigan State, you will leave knowing more about the law than you could have imagined.
