"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."
