The Career Office has been great. They bring in alumni. They bring in active practitioners and judges and all sorts of folks to help us network and meet people, and the advice they give and the experience that they've got has been the primary factor, I think, in what's made me successful thus far.
Early on, as a first year, CAAS provided a lot of workshops on just how to attack law school. And I found that it was very helpful because it had been a long time since I've been back in grad school. I think, with my combination of a CPA and a JD, I will have tremendous opportunities. I want to go into corporate law, which is what my final job offer from my law firm is-- to work and help emerging companies. I'm very excited about that, and I'm very proud to be at Scalia Law School-- a soon-to-be grad.
At George Mason, I really learned that my skills really were in litigation. Now, I'm in federal practice representing the United States, which George Mason prepared me for a very, very well. The Law and Economics program at George Mason has made me a much better litigator. It's helped me see the bigger picture in the ways that often opposing counsel of mine doesn't see. I've loved the work that I've been doing since I graduated from George Mason.
