J. Leonard Teti

J. Leonard Teti '05

New York City

"Be ready to see lots of things you haven't seen before in law school, and bring with you a sense of curiosity and willingness to learn what you don't know."

James A. Pardo

James A. Pardo '79

Atlanta

"Do your homework and think through what you are looking for beyond a paycheck."

"Be global. Think of yourself and the United States only as a humble contributor to an international symphony."

Adrienne Penta

Adrienne Penta '03

Boston

"There are more UVA lawyers than you might suspect in Boston, and we will all find time to speak with a Virginia Law student interested in working here."

Steven R. Okun

Steven R. Okun '91

"While being bilingual can be a prerequisite for getting a job in certain markets, such as China, being multicultural is a prerequisite in every market."

Karen Owen Gibbs

Karen Owen Gibbs '92

Chicago

"As I've progressed in my career, the softer skills have been highly important. I credit UVA with preparing me to help my clients navigate opportunities and challenges from a 360-degree perspective."

Kandice L. Horsey

Kandice L. Horsey '03

London

"I formed relationships that have lasted since my arrival at law school, and have been truly meaningful. Through this, I have learned to network in a way that creates and maintains bonds without being (or seeming) opportunistic."

Aditi Goel

Aditi Goel '12

Boston

"As a public defender, I am advocating for my clients in court almost every day — making bail arguments, requesting discovery, arguing motions, cross-examining witnesses, and having jury trials. There is no question in my mind that Virginia Law trained me for this job."

Terrica Redfield Ganzy

Terrica Redfield Ganzy '02

Atlanta

"I could go on and on about the professors who encouraged me, the students who supported me, the environment that allowed me to find my path and take it. In sum, however, I found my passion at UVA Law, and I haven’t turned back since."

Lisa Friel

Lisa M. Friel '83

New York City

"UVA Law is unique in fostering an environment of teamwork and trust, both of which are so important to be successful in today’s world."
