“Catholic University's Columbus School of Law has influenced every aspect of my career. CUA provided a strong foundation through its legal education, but the people - from my classmates to professors to alumni I've met post-graduation - are what really make Catholic stand out. I've always been able to engage in robust discussions and debates, which have challenged my perspective. It was in law school where I learned to disagree without being disagreeable, and this has helped me view issues in a holistic manner undoubtedly improving my work.”
