Meet the Students
"I love being in a class of people who have such diverse life experiences. I came straight through from undergrad, but in law school, a lot of my classmates have work and life experience that I get to learn so much from."
"Come to Dedman School of law if you seek world-class legal education in a collegial environment. When you get here; listen, learn, practice, enjoy, and always remember why you came to law school."
"My favorite part about law school so far has been networking, particularly with my fellow classmates. Everyone has such a unique background and experience to share, but somehow, we have all found our way here at the same law school. I believe that our varied backgrounds have helped create a one-of-a-kind collaborative environment that I am so glad to be a part of."
