How did Drake Law prepare you for your career?

Drake provided a wonderful foundation for my legal career. The courses and the dedicated professors prepared me to pass the bar exam. And the various practical modules, such as the legal clinic, moot court, mock trial and internships, prepared me for the challenges of being a new attorney.

What information would you like to share with a prospective Drake Law student?

My advice is not to enter law school with an agenda that is too specific. Be open-minded. Take a broad assortment of classes because you never know what type of law you might end up practicing or where your law degree will take you beyond the legal profession. Additionally, while studying is important, don't forget that being successful requires finding a balance.
