"Participating in the college's moot court competitions has been incredibly fulfilling. My teammate and I were able to argue in front of panels from both the Nebraska Court of Appeals and the Nebraska Supreme Court. Along with another teammate, we were later semifinalists in the regional competition against other schools."

"As the president of my class, I have been a leader in the Student Bar Association (SBA). We put on several annual events to both foster a sense of community within the law school and connect us with the community around us. From hosting social events for students and faculty to helping with blood drives and families in need, the SBA for me has been a great example of what Nebraska Law is all about."
Student Bar Association
"I participated in the criminal clinic this past Fall. It was incredibly exciting to prosecute cases and manage a real case load through the County Attorney's office. As a senior certified student, I made charging decisions, negotiated with opposing counsel, and actually prosecuted cases in the courtroom."
John Zimmer
"Taking Appellate Advocacy with Professor Lenich was highlight for me academically last year. I learned so much as we wrote several briefs, participated in oral arguments, and talked with appellate judges and practitioners. Professor Lenich was a great resource, gave us each individual attention to help us improve. This experience gave me key skills and connections that continued to pay dividends as I worked during the summer."
