1) Why did you choose Charleston Law?

I chose to attend the Charleston School of Law because I believe in the school’s motto, pro bono populi, for the good of the people. From a young age, I have always had a desire to help others. In addition, the city of Charleston is a unique intersection of American history, environmental advocacy, and leisure, all of which I enjoy and what made choosing Charleston Law a no-brainer.

2) What has been your most rewarding experience at Charleston Law?

Being a member of the Moot Court and Trial Advocacy Boards has been a highlight. As a retired athlete, having the opportunity to travel and represent the school in a competitive environment has been wonderful. Being able to show others at nationally recognized competitions the academic strength of Charleston Law students has been very rewarding.

3) If your overall law school experience had a theme song, what would it be?

“Remember the Name” – Fort Minor

4) What is your best advice for new law students?

Ask for help. Find a mentor, or a few, and ask them questions. Law school is a beast, but one great thing about the legal profession is the undying support that lawyers have for one another. Don’t try to do it alone!
