Question 5

How did Whittier Law School help nurture your interest in this practice area?

Whittier Law School offers a wide range of classes, clinics, and externship opportunities. There is no one “right way” to discover the career you were born to pursue. For lawyers, it is important to remember that bar required courses prepare you for the bar exam, but they do not provide a basis for determining what area of law you are most interested. The ability to gain real world experience and exposure to a variety of areas of law allowed me to evaluate different types of practices, including firm sizes, practice areas, geographic locations, and case sizes. This experience is what led me to pursue employment law.
