Hi! My name is Cole Mayer. I am a student here at Drake Law School, and I am primarily interested in immigration and criminal law
. I grew up about 20 minutes south of Drake in Indianola, Iowa. After high school I took an opportunity to student teach while living in Germany for a year
. Following my stint in Germany, I attended the University of Northern Iowa where I double majored in history and in German.
While in college, I had whittled down my career choices between teaching and law, and ultimately I decided on pursuing a law degree. Growing up near Drake, I had heard many reviews from law school grads about their experiences while they attended Drake. The main thing I noticed is that I never heard a negative review. Additionally, out of all the campuses I visited, Drake was the most welcoming from day one
. It was the totality of these factors that made my decision to go to Drake Law an easy one.
During my time at Drake Law I have worked at the Law Offices of Michael H. Said which specializes in immigration, criminal, and juvenile law.
My best experience was participating in the first year trial practicum
. Our trial was a civil commitment of a sexually violent predator, which was a more eye-opening
, and informative experience
, than I could have imagined. Drake Law School’s commitment to preparing its students to practice law in the real world is championed by an outstanding faculty
; and I know that if you make the choice to attend Drake Law you too will understand their commitment to your success in the legal community.
