EMU taught me to work hard and fueled my passion for social justice, preparing me to both succeed in law school and resist the strong current towards corporate law."quote

I hope to become an advocate for those who can't afford to pay for representation and information… maybe in the area of immigration, maybe legal aid, or human rights.

My experience at EMU encouraged me to have a good work-ethic which is helping me survive and even thrive in law school.

The JCPS major gave me a glimpse into the criminal justice system which helps me feel a tad more comfortable in the law school setting.

Working at EMU’s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding [with the Summer Peacebuilding Institute] gave me some amazing experience with the criminal justice system and attorneys who work in it.
