I came into the program with big ideas on the benefits of a foreign law degree. I was excited about the opportunity to take courses online and meet a diverse faculty who actively support those in pursuit of a legal education and representing international lawyers. Most importantly, being a child of immigrant parents, I wanted to find a law school where there’s true diversity and inclusion, and be a part of something bigger. I found the law school and have grown to love the community here, whole-heartedly supporting both foreign and U.S. law students. I feel supported at the law school and it’s a perfect fit. More importantly, I know for myself that it’s the right school for me, and when I’m prepared for the job market, I’ll let the hiring committee know who I am and why I decided to attend a foreign law school
