“As a transfer student that has attended two law schools, I can honestly say the staff, professors and students at UB Law are the best.”

Hometown: Buffalo, NY

Undergraduate institution and major: UB, Social Science Interdisciplinary Legal Studies.

Legal Interests: Family Law & Criminal Law.

Law School activities: Black Law Student Association (BLSA), Family and Children’s Law Society, Intersectional Activism Alliance, Student Bar Association, Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition and Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York.

Why did you choose UB School of Law?:
I originally attended Law School In North Carolina. I transfer to UB Law because I was homesick and this school is much better than the school I attended.

Advice for accepted students: Keep up with the class readings, start outlining early and make time for self-care in your weekly schedule.

Fun fact: I have a daughter who is ironically named Justice.
