"Our school is very focused on the practical skills that we'll need right out of law school, including many skills classes. I took Trial Advocacy last Spring and so far it has been my favorite course in law school. I learned excellent litigation skills in that class and I utilized those skills when I appeared in the Lancaster District Court as a Senior Certified Student Attorney during my summer 2015 clerkship."

"I am very passionate about International Human Rights Law and I hope to work for the United Nations someday. At Nebraska Law, I took Human Rights seminar with Professor Lepard, who is a well known scholar on the subject. His class allowed me to deepen my interest in the subject and helped me understand various tools that nations can utilize to protect human rights and human dignity. "

And having the opportunity to be involved with student organizations like ATLAS and NDCA has allowed me to make a difference while learning valuable leadership skills."

"I got to meet and have lunch with Chief Justice Roberts along with a few other classmates when he visited our school last year. It was an opportunity of a lifetime! It was incredible to hear him speak about his life and his experiences as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court."
