"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."

"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."

"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."

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."

Adam Milasincic

"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."

Neil McKittrick

Neil McKittrick '87

Boston

"In the new legal market, networking is more important than ever. "

Todd C. Jacobs

"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."
