Well-come Back! Wellness Resources for Success

The start of fall semester might bring a mix of emotions. The excitement of being back on campus to see friends is generally met with the realization that summer is over.

What sparked your interest in applying to law school?

Although nobody I knew had practiced law, my family had always been sufficiently connected to the legal world. First, entrenched in the pharmaceutical industry, my parents dealt indirectly with intellectual property and regulatory issues.
