How did Drake Law prepare you for your career?
Drake provided a great opportunity to gain practical experience and confidence. I was able to participate and compete in mock trial as well as argue real cases before the Iowa Court of Appeals under the supervision of seasoned lawyers. What information would you like to share with a prospective Drake Law student?
Do not be afraid to meet your professors and ask for help. In my opinion, asking for help is presenting a problem, providing your analysis of the situation and asking to overcome a specific obstacle in your problem. I found this to be very beneficial to me during my three years at Drake Law.
