I was a 23 year old, 2nd year law student and law was just not igniting a passion. Serendipitously, I discovered John’s pioneering program inciting me to harness both my creative and analytical aspects.
They were seeking a law student to add to the diverse disciplines of the students in the class. It was hard to envision such a combination at the time.
John, and his fellow faculty members, became my mentors and gave me a powerful framework harnessing this combination and building what has been an amazing, challenging and joyful career over the half century the followed.
John’s multidisciplinary team approach and hands-on practicum’s gave me the skill sets and confidence that I would not have otherwise gained. For this I am so very grateful!
