A Dickinson Law Favorite:
I love our community, specifically our small class sizes, which encourages me to speak up in class. It helps to know other students, and the small class sizes ensure that all the professors personally know me.

Why Dickinson Law?:
I chose Dickinson Law because of the financial aid and the small class sizes. It was an ideal location for me because big cities are expensive to live in.

Internship:
I had a wonderful experience working in the Admissions Office during the spring semester of my 1L year. I further developed my interpersonal skills and learned how to work in a group to increase efficiency. Currently, I am learning a lot about litigation surrounding trade secrets misappropriation while working as Dean Conway’s research assistant. I am improving my legal writing skills and am developing an interest in intellectual property.

Favorite Course:
I really enjoyed studying Torts, Property Law, and Constitutional Law.

Advice for Prospective Law Students:
You will face a difficult situation almost every day in law school, but you can sail through everything if you stay focused and dedicated towards your end goal.

Something You Love About Carlisle:
I come from a very big and busy metropolitan area, so I love the fact that everything is so near and accessible in Carlisle. The distance between my house and the Law School campus is a blessing.

I am 22 years old, and I have already lived in three different continents by myself. I lived in Philippines for two months; in Dublin, Ireland, for one year while obtaining my master’s degree; and I am living in the United States while studying at Dickinson Law.
