How did Drake Law prepare you for your career?
The biggest thing is that I could practice as soon as I graduated from law school. I feel like I had a practical education and could truly make a contribution to my employer. What information would you like to share with a prospective Drake Law student?
I felt that the law school was a close knit group of people. I found great friends and relationships that I will maintain for a very long time. It had a great atmosphere for getting to know people and it felt collegial. I did feel like Drake pursued me and had an interest in me, a feeling that I did not get from other law schools. More importantly, the professors truly had an interest in me and helped me figured out that corporate counsel is what I wanted to do.
