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."

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."

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."

Doug Bouton

Douglas Bouton '10

Chicago

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

Amy Lincoln

Amy Lincoln '02

San Francisco

"To this day, when I say to other lawyers, ‘I loved law school’ they have one of two reactions: they either look at me like I’m crazy, or they say, ‘Oh, you must have gone to Virginia.’"

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."

Steven R. Okun

Steven R. Okun '91

Singapore

"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."

Neil McKittrick

Neil McKittrick '87

Boston

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

Kandice L. Horsey

Kandice L. Horsey '03

"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."
