What advice would you offer to incoming 1L Law Students?

Treat this experience like a full-time job. The workload is very manageable if you start early and continue to put the time in throughout the semester.  However, while putting the time in is important, so is learning from your classmates. I learned as much, if not more, from my classmates than I did on my own.

Why did you choose the U of I College of Law?

I initially chose this program because of the location. Boise is an incredible city with much to offer. If I had to choose it again, it would be because of the faculty. Law school is a difficult transition—and a transition which transpires quickly. The faculty was incredibly helpful, supportive, and kind through my 1L experience. The faculty and staff is what sets the University of Idaho College of Law apart.

Why do you want to be an attorney?

That is a long story. The short version is being an attorney is an opportunity to help others in their greatest moment of need.

What has been your favorite course or who has been your favorite professor since starting your legal education?

It is difficult to pick just one, however, Professor Miller and Property was my favorite 1L course.

Which College of Law student organization stands out to you and why?

Real Estate Law and Land Use Club really stands out. While the content and club offerings are very insightful to as I navigate my career plan, the club itself was new last year. If there isn’t a club that an incoming student really wants to see, they can work to make it happen!

Which student services office has been particularly helpful?

Dir. Cude and the Academic Success team were integral to my success in my 1L year. They were there to help me celebrate the wins, but also keep me focused.

What is your favorite Moscow/Boise recommendation?

I love the restaurant Fork!

Give one “fun fact” about yourself

I am a father! Juggling law school with my kids is difficult, but I am thankful of the daily reminder to seek the balance of work and life.
