Washburn Law Office | Topeka, Kansas

My last semester of law school has been one of the busiest since I have been at Washburn Law. Being on Law Journal and a research assistant for Professor McMillan has kept me busy, on top of my classes. Although it has been busy, it has been very rewarding. This semester I was also able to participate in Washburn’s VITA clinic, the ABA Law Student Tax Challenge in Phoenix, Arizona, the ABA/LSD Client Counseling Competition in Columbia, Missouri, and I am currently working on a paper for the Tannenwald Writing Competition.

Washburn Law The Stage for the Future

The next big decision was where to enroll. I chose Washburn University School of Law for several reasons. I researched the school’s standing and notable alumni, its excellence in legal research, and its location in the heart of the U.S., within a state that has had an instrumental impact on our Country’s history: Bloody Kansas, John Brown, Brown vs. Board of Education, etc. Also, a strong factor was the economics of attending Washburn Law with its very favorable tuition and living costs compared to alternative schools. While I don’t mind graduating with school loan balance, other law schools would have left me with a much greater educational debt that would follow me for many years. Finally, and most importantly, the warmth and friendliness of the faculty and students I met during my initial visit made me feel very welcome and comfortable. In fact, I feel as if Kansas truly has an environment that is conducive to productivity and has an educational benefit. Topeka is a peaceful municipality with just enough diversity and hustle and bustle to have fun, but not to be distracted from the primary reason I am here: education.

As a 3L at Washburn Law, I feel a little shocked at how quickly my time in law school has passed. Between classes, extra-curricular activities, and preparation for graduation and the bar, I feel like this year has moved the fastest of all of my years in law school. I think that I, as well as many of my classmates, feel torn between my enjoyment of Washburn Law and my excitement to begin a career. My advice is to take the classes that interest you and enjoy this experience while it lasts. I’ve found that the best way to handle the stress of the 3L year is to make the most of the academic and social activities at Washburn Law.

Somehow I’ve managed to do all of these activities while also taking 16 credit hours this semester. Like I said earlier, I got a little carried away with my goal to be involved this semester. But nonetheless, I’ve enjoyed every moment. Through each opportunity at Washburn Law, I’ve gained something valuable.
