Her Own Words

"Law school is such a unique endeavor that, unless they've done it themselves, most of your friends and family cannot appreciate your conversations about 'blue booking,' 'outlining,' or 'writing on.' But William & Mary has mastered the art of community. From the moment you enter the sliding doors of the law school, every person you encounter is a knowing confidante. And that goes far beyond your classmates and professors.  It includes the barrista who will never fail to hand you your coffee with a, 'there you go, baby,' and the administrators who show genuine concern if you pass their desks with a look of despair. The professors, the service workers, and everyone in between become an essential part of your law school experience."
