Her Own Words
"One of the greatest things about William & Mary is the people. Through participation in student organizations and extracurricular activities, I had the opportunity to work with really amazing people. William & Mary does such a wonderful job fostering a great collegial atmosphere among its students. My experiences working with fellow students really defined my time at law school."
