Doug Bouton

Douglas Bouton '10

"I think the people are what make UVA Law so special, enjoyable and distinguishable from other law school experiences."

Lisa Friel

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."

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."

Todd C. Jacobs

Todd C. Jacobs '89

Chicago

"Many cases we handle do not have straightforward answers, and new subject matters arise daily. It’s within these gray areas that I appreciate how UVA Law teaches students to think through complex questions."

Susan L. Fox

Susan L. Fox '91

Washington, D.C.

"Don’t let inertia keep you in a job that isn’t leading you in the right direction. Be open to nontraditional jobs and work in government and policy fields to expand your horizons."

Roscoe Jones

Roscoe Jones '03

Washington, D.C.

"Washington is a town built on relationships. So keep in touch with the contacts you make there and find a mentor in the city- you never know when that one contact will open up a door for you to walk through."

Adam Milasincic

Adam Milasincic '11

Houston

"UVA Law’s network and reputation open doors. That fact helped me land my first position, and it is rare for a month to pass without meeting a new client, opposing counsel, judge, etc., with a UVA connection."

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."

Eduardo Ramos-Gomez LL.M.

Eduardo Ramos-Gomez LL.M. '85

Singapore

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

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."
