Favorite Memory from GW Law

Classes such as constitutional law and international law were intellectually challenging, and I enjoyed the insightful class discussions that the professors facilitated in their teaching of the materials.


With Gratitude

A special thanks to my husband and our families for all of their love and support along the way. Attending school part-time and working full-time was an adventure already, and when our daughter was born half-way through my time at law school, the help from our families became even more critical. I couldn't have done it without you! A big thanks also to my sweet daughter for keeping me motivated. The best part of finishing a long day of work and classes was knowing that I was coming home to you and your dad!
