What I'm Doing with my Law Degree: Rep. James Sensenbrenner '68

Rep. James Sensenbrenner visited the University of Wisconsin Law School in April to participate in the ongoing series, “What I’m Doing with my Law Degree.”

In an interview-style presentation with Dean Raymond, the congressman offered highlights from a 45-year career in politics that began with his election to the state assembly in 1968, the same year he graduated from the Law School. Sensenbrenner went on to serve in the state legislature until his 1979 election to the U.S. House of Representatives, where he now represents Wisconsin’s 5th District.

Many of the law students, faculty and staff in attendance—who had the opportunity to pose questions—sought advice for students considering careers in politics. Below, watch excerpts from Sensenbrenner’s presentation in the video, “5 Tips for Law Students Starting in Politics.”
