How did Drake Law prepare you for your career?
I received a well-rounded and practical education as a student at Drake Law and I believe that the internships and legal clinic experiences available to students are some of the best assets of Drake. My internships gave me a broad opportunity and the practicality proved to be advantageous to me in my career. What information would you like to share with a prospective Drake Law student?
As a prospective student, you need to be prepared for a law school education, learning to write and think. These skills will prove to be important to your success as a lawyer. This is a great profession for those people who are interested in helping someone and there is no better way than to do so than through the field of law.
