“The education I received as an evening law student with the Catholic University Columbus School of Law was life-changing, inasmuch as it allowed me to attend law school as a working professional while also building solid relationships with members of the legal community. These relationships ultimately led me to serving the District of Columbia as a public servant for nearly 20 years and I couldn’t be more proud to do so as a Catholic University graduate.”
