Q&A with Jennifer

Why did you decide to come to UW Law School?

I decided to come to UW Law School because I was impressed with the atmosphere both inside and outside the law school. UW Law was very welcoming and friendly as were many of the people in Madison. Coming from New York City, I was pleased to experience such a difference regarding the vibe and pace of life.

What did you do the summer before you started law school?

The summer before law school, I worked full-time as a career ambassador for America Works in Queens, NY. My role with America Works involved helping individuals overcome barriers preventing them from getting back into the workforce. While at America Works, I worked with clients and their case managers, assisting them with job search, training, interviewing, and any administrative support.

What is one thing you wish you knew about law school or the admissions process ahead of time?

I wish I knew how important it is to know or at least think about the decisions you'll be making your 1L year and into your 2L year. For example, the application process for 1L summer jobs began late in the fall semester. At the time, I still was unsure of what I wanted to do or where I wanted to be. Similarly, the application process for 2L summer jobs begin in July, but by then, you want to have most of your application materials ready. Law school goes by a lot quicker than it seems, and often it seems you are always preparing applications or the like.

What student organizations or activities are you involved in?

I am currently the community service chair for both Latinx Law Student Association (LLSA) and the Black Law Student Association (BLSA). I am also a 2L rep for SBA. In addition to that, I am a member of the Wisconsin Moot Court and a member of the Wisconsin Journal of Law, Gender, and Society.

Discuss any exciting jobs or internships you’ve had while in law school.

This summer, I worked for one of the law school clinics - the Wisconsin Innocence Project (WIP). My work with WIP has been incredibly rewarding. Throughout the summer, I had the opportunity to strengthen my research and writing skills while simultaneously contributing to an appellate brief that has since been filed. I have also met or spoken to clients and communicated to them anything from their upcoming evidentiary hearings to decision handed down by the court. After a year of taking classes and learning about concepts, WIP has been extremely motivating because it allows me to use what I've learned into practice. I am to place a face behind the work I am doing, knowing my contribution are meaningful.

Any other interesting facts about you?

I love dogs. One thing I enjoy about Madison is the bunnies and chipmunks that come out in the Spring.

Q&A with Sunny

Why did you decide to come to UW Law School?

I have always known that I wanted to come to law school since I took an introductory criminal course my first semester of undergraduate school. The topic interested me immensely, and I knew that I wanted to learn as much as possible about the law. I continued to take various law courses during my undergraduate studies, and loved every single one of them. I also worked at the Public Defender's Office in Baraboo and Madison, which confirmed that I wanted to work in the law. Therefore, law school was a natural next step. I chose UW Law School because I love Madison and I did not feel ready to leave. The community at UW Madison is amazing and I have so much pride in being a Badger and I couldn't imagine a better campus to further pursue my academic goals.

What did you do the summer before you started law school?

I worked at the Coliseum Bar and Banquet in Madison for most of the summer. I thought that it would be important to work in customer service and learn how to meet and interact with a wide variety of people. Working in customer service taught me to be understanding, empathetic and how to work with a wide variety of people.

What is one thing you wish you knew about law school or the admissions process ahead of time?

I wish that I knew how important it was to go to the office hours of professors my first year of law school. Talking to the professors and asking questions is a very important tool to success, and I wish I would have utilized these opportunities more when I first started.

What student organizations or activities are you involved in?

I am part of BATLAW.

Q&A with Katie

Why did you decide to come to UW Law School?

I wanted a Big10 University in the Midwest so I could be close to family. When I visited, I fell in love with Madison and the people at the law school. With its strong reputation and various clinical programs, I felt it was a strong fit academically and personally.

What did you do the summer before you started law school?

I wanted to enjoy my summer while still making money. I found myself as a full time babysitting position for two awesome kiddos and had a lot of pool days. When I wasn't working, I was on the lake. I came into law school completely rested and mentally ready for the semester - I highly recommend it.

What is one thing you wish you knew about law school or the admissions process ahead of time?

Regarding the admissions process...get those letters of recommendation early! Practice exams are not less important than outlines. Do as many as you can and don't only focus on making the "perfect" outline. It's the application that matters! And oh yeah, law school is hard but not as bad as they all say.

What student organizations or activities are you involved in?

I became president of the student wellness coalition and was selected for moot court my second semester. I am also a Dean's Cup enthusiast.

Q&A with Lo

Why did you decide to come to UW Law School?

I am a double Badger! So I attended UW for undergraduate school. It was important for me to attend a top tier university that provided a well-rounded legal education. I was very interested in the Diversity Programs available here such as the Diversity Clerkship Program that I participated in this past summer. Furthermore, the professors are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about their subject areas. Their expertise creates dynamic and valuable classroom discussions. Lastly, financially UW was the most financially feasible option for me and my family.

What did you do the summer before you started law school?

The summer before I was a First Grade Teacher in Saudi Arabia.

What is one thing you wish you knew about law school or the admissions process ahead of time?

I am involved with BLSA, ILSA, LLSA, MELSA and Moot Court.

Q&A with Randall

Why did you decide to come to UW Law School?

I chose UW Law School because of its faculty and diploma privilege. When I arrived at the law school, I quickly realized that the professors are some of the most passionate, creative and intelligent individuals that I have ever had the pleasure of being taught by. Moreover, diploma privilege presented a unique opportunity to potentially not have to take a bar exam after graduation if I chose to remain in Wisconsin.

What did you do the summer before you started law school?

The summer before law school I was a paralegal/case analyst for the Chapter 13 Trustee of Chicago.

What is one thing you wish you knew about law school or the admissions process ahead of time?

I wish I had known how important it was ahead of time to order books ASAP. In undergrad I was always the sort of student who waited until they received their full book list and would then order all of my books at once. However because of the fact that most 1Ls across the country take the same classes in their first semesters, some books sell out (both on campus and online) weeks before school starts. There is nothing more annoying than starting your law school journey without all the requisite materials, so I highly advise ordering books as soon as any professor notifies you.

What student organizations or activities are you involved in?

Co-President of BLSA and a member of Moot Court.

I was working for a non-profit the Spring Semester before Law School, so during the summer I took a break, visited my family and friends in Brazil, and overall just enjoyed my summer.

What is one thing you wish you knew about law school or the admissions process ahead of time?

I think the admission process was very straightforward. What I wish I knew about actual Law School is that you do not have to be the top of your class to find good job opportunities. Always shoot for the stars and try to be the best student you can, but if you are in the bottom of your class, do not worry, things will be alright.

What student organizations or activities are you involved in?

Why did you decide to come to UW Law School?

I was particularly attracted by the idea of “Law in Action”. UW Law School provides students with outstanding clinical programs, pro bono work opportunities and externship programs, which let students gain hands-on experiences from practice. Not to mention it has excellent professors, faculty members and alumni network. Being a capital city, Madison brings the school with numerous benefits including walking distance to the courthouses near the Capitol. Moreover, Madison is a top-ranked college town in the US, which is super friendly to students.

What did you do the summer before you started law school?

I spent the summer traveling around with my families and friends. I did a road trip of two thousand miles in Northwest China and experienced the culture along the Silk Road.

What is one thing you wish you knew about law school or the admissions process ahead of time?

Law school can be stressful and challenging. You need to find your way to release the stress and balance your life and study. 1L year is a great opportunity to make friends, especially the first semester, when you have the exact same schedule with students in your section. You don’t need to fight alone! Also, keep your own pace all the time no matter what other people do.

What student organizations or activities are you involved in?

I am the Vice President of the Asian Law Student Association. I am also in WLSA (Women’s Law Student Association) and BATLAW (The Business and Tax Association of Wisconsin). All these organizations provide students with great resources and opportunities to connect and socialize with fellow students and professionals.

Discuss any exciting jobs or internships you’ve had while in law school.

I worked as a judicial intern in Judge Furay’s chamber at the United States Bankruptcy Court, Western District of Wisconsin. I worked closely with the law clerk and prepared case notes for all preliminary hearings. I got chances to work on proceedings under all chapters of the Bankruptcy Code. I also collaborated with the law clerk on the preparation of bench memos. It’s a very rewarding summer to not only learn about Bankruptcy law, but also gain a better understanding of how the courts decide cases behind the scenes.
