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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

Kurt L. Davis Jr.

Kurt L. Davis Jr. '09

Houston

"Employers know UVA Law in Houston, in the U.S. and beyond the borders of the U.S. "

Neil McKittrick

Neil McKittrick '87

Boston

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