“I really appreciate the friendly, intimate environment,” she says. “The small class sizes allow you to get one-on-one assistance. The professors are always available. They spend a lot of time fostering student development and helping us learn. It is a very supportive environment and I really enjoy spending each day there.”
Megan has also been a good fit for the college, taking on many leadership roles in several of the college’s student organizations. She is vice president of the Idaho Trial Lawyers Association Student Chapter, she serves as clerk for the law school’s chapter of the Phi Alpha Delta Legal Fraternity, and she’s an active member of the Business Law Group and the International Law Club.
“I feel strongly that it’s important to get involved,” she says. “You can meet other students that are in the same boat. You establish relationships that will help you in your career going forward, and you create lifelong friendships.”
While Megan seems to have adjusted particularly well to law school, a legal career is quite a deviation from her original plans.
“I went to college on a vocal scholarship to become a professional singer,” says Megan, who received her undergraduate degree from Idaho State University. “But, after reevaluating my career options, I changed my major to business. I took some business law courses, which really piqued my interest in law.”
Megan is now in her second year at the University of Idaho College of Law. She plans to pursue a professional practice in business law and estate planning.
