"The professors at Nebraska Law are more than leaders in their respective areas of expertise—they're wonderful teachers. They have the unique ability to teach complex subjects in an effective, engaging manner, all while genuinely caring about their students' success. Nebraska Law is also on the cutting edge in terms of utilizing clinics and practical experiences to prepare students for practice."
"Participation with the Community Legal Education Project has been a highlight of my legal education. The group believes the law is too important to be left to lawyers, so we volunteer and classrooms around the community to foster civic engagement and awareness of the law. Teaching kids about how the law affects them every day, and how they can and should be involved citizens is incredibly rewarding."
"The friends I've made at Nebraska Law have made the last couple years not only bearable, but enjoyable. Whether it's pick-up basketball, happy hour in the Haymarket, or a football Saturday, the environment at Nebraska Law is incredibly friendly. It certainly helps that Lincoln is quickly becoming a wonderful and exciting place for young professionals."
"I participated in on-campus interviews after my first semester of 1L year. I used that opportunity to get a job with a local firm in town, where I worked for my 1L and 2L summers. I was thrilled when they offered me a full-time job before my 3L year began. The Career Development Office took what is arguably the most important and stressful part of law school and made it as easy as possible."
