  3. What have you enjoyed most about 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.
  4. What, if anything, have you learned about yourself since coming to law school? I have learned to be more confident in myself and my abilities. 
  5. Any advice for those considering SMU Law? For first year law students I would definitely advise to maintain a strong support group of friends. Don’t isolate yourself. Law school is extremely hard and time consuming, but in my experience, it has been so much more manageable and even fun because of the deep relationships I have built with my friends.
