  4. What is diversity and inclusion like at SMU Law? I think SMU, and more specifically Dean Fadel and the rest of ODI, does a great job implementing various types of DEI programming that are meaningful and engaging for allstudents.
  5. What have you enjoyed most about law school? My favorite part about law school has been the opportunity to learn about so many interesting and important areas of law from some of the best professors and experts in their respective fields
  6. What, if anything, have you learned about yourself since coming to law school? Since law school, I have learned how to discipline myself and structure my schedule to maximize my own efficiency and productivity. That looks different for everyone and can take time to figure out!
  7. Any advice for those considering SMU Law? Attending law school at SMU has been an incredible experience. Treat the next 3 years like it is your full-time job but remember to spend time with friends and family, exercise, cook, or continue doing the things that you enjoyed doing before law school! Balance is key to success.
