Finding Your Passion
A legal education will open doors and enable you to explore your passions, both inside and outside of the legal world.
Join us for a series of events led by distinguished jurists and practitioners that will focus on the different ways in which we can explore our passions throughout law school and as we begin our careers, and the importance of doing so with professionalism and integrity.
