As an undergrad, I had an amazing professor who sparked my interest in the law and how it relates to genetics, specifically gene patenting. From that moment forward my decision to go to law school was finalized. The law is integral to absolutely everything currently in the news. This realization is profound and a bit daunting. I am excited to be a part of a community that has the ability to change and touch so much in our world. You really do learn a “skill” in law school -- something that I felt I was lacking tremendously after undergrad. This skill now gives me the ability to help people in a whole new way, and I love that.
