In Her Words ...
"As an educator, my goal is to prepare students for the legal profession by providing them with the analytical, ethical, and practical training necessary to become truly excellent lawyers. To this end, I urge students to consider whether our civil system grants equal access to justice, and if not, then what can be done to remedy that inequity."
