“I cherished the environment at MSU Law. I met wonderful professors who were always willing to go the extra mile for their students and I met lifelong friends.”

Bridget Sheehan works in site acquisition for Verizon Wireless in the rapidly-growing telecommunications field. She handles more than 60 wireless site modification projects in three different states. She researches jurisdictional issues, submits memos to in-house counsel for review and approval, and she handles lease interpretation as well as landlord compliance with lease requirements.

“I thoroughly enjoy working for the company and seeing it grow and expand,” she said. “I appreciate the opportunity to travel each quarter for work, to interact with a variety of different people, and to use my legal background in a less traditional manner.”

While at MSU College of Law, Bridget competed on the Moot Court and Trial Advocacy Board. “It prepared me for my legal career in many ways,” she said. “It pushed me out of my comfort zone, and taught me to be prepared for anything. The professors, coaches and my colleagues involved with that program provided me with an experience that I will always value and cherish.”  

She remembers time at MSU College of Law fondly. “From the very first moment when I took the tour as a prospective law student, I felt welcomed by current students and professors,” she said. “I cherished the environment at MSU Law. I met wonderful professors who were always willing to go the extra mile for their students and I met lifelong friends.”

Her involvement in a variety of student organizations also taught her invaluable time management skills. “It helps me enormously when I have a heavy workload and a lot to accomplish in a short amount of time,” she said. “I strongly recommend doing internships during the summer and the school year. They provide you with legal experiences which make you marketable upon graduation.”  

Bridget also recommends that current law students keep in touch with their previous employers. “My previous employers proved instrumental in finding new jobs and providing references,” she said. “Also, the alumni network with MSU is something that many students rely on to network and meet new people. Be sure to take advantage of it.”
