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.’"

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."

Ruthie Ma Swilling

Ruthie Ma Swilling '03

Boston

"It was during my 4th year working for a Big Law firm in Boston that I decided to assess ‘Where is this ladder heading?’ and made the choice to switch to an in-house position."

"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."

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."

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."

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."

William M. Bosch

William M. Bosch '92

Washington, D.C.

"The Virginia lawyer graduates with an understanding that it is possible to be a gladiator without losing touch with humanity. In fact, it is essential to a long and successful career - especially as a trial lawyer and litigator."

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."

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."
