Alumni talk about how to choose a law school (and what to do once you get there)
On March 20, 2019, the Student HenLaw Society hosted an attorney alumni panel including Candice Pryce ('11), Christopher Merken ('17), and Jacqueline Campbell ('05). A variety of topics were covered, including: the application process of law school, professional networking tips, job connections via law school peers, and how to pick the right law school.
The panel stressed the importance of 1L grades, since they play a crucial role in determining your internships and subsequent opportunities. These early connections through peers, mentors, and initial internships will be the key success once you are in the work field. Additionally, each of the panelists described their own unique paths into law school and how the location of where you go to law school is something all undergraduates must take note of during their application processes.
In the end, the final point was that relationships were the key to success, especially relationships made through the University of Delaware. The alumni emphasized that they, as well as the rest of the Alumni HenLaw Society, are here to help and aid the undergraduate society members in any way possible along their journeys.
