William and Mary Law School
I couldn't be more appreciative of the education and opportunities I received at William & Mary. Coursework on constitution-making, the rule of law, and international law gave me a solid base of knowledge I draw on frequently in my work. The professors teaching these courses were not only excellent teachers, but were actively involved in helping students succeed in related careers. Through my research fellowship, externship and summer positions I gained wide-ranging, practical experience leading to my current position with the United States Institute of Peace.
