DiSciullo said William & Mary is known for its commitment to educating citizen lawyers. “Students at William & Mary are taught about the power and the responsibility they will have as attorneys to affect change for good within their communities, regardless of the type of law they practice or legal career they choose to follow,” she said. “I’m looking forward to being part of a community that has such a strong belief in the importance of service to others.”
