What is your experience with MSU Law?
The Law College exceeds the expectation of what law school is all about. It is extremely challenging, but you’re provided with all of the tools needed to be successful. Between upper level students, professors, and administrative faculty, everyone does what they can to assist students and aid them in their success.

Describe your relationship with fellow classmates and faculty.
One of my best relationships has been with Mrs. Goldie Pritchard as I try to get ahead preparing for the Bar. She has been more than willing to answer my questions in an attempt to alleviate my fears, and has provided me with one-on-one essay writing sessions to simulate what the Bar will be like.

What has been your experience as a clinician in the Civil Rights clinic, and Small Business and Nonprofit (SBNP) clinic?
Those experiences provided difficult, yet mentally stimulating challenges. The SBNP clinic gave me the chance to help other people get their nonprofit organizations legalized so they could make real change in the community we both serve. The Civil Rights Clinic allowed me to make meaningful change when I got to make closing arguments in a Federal Court case that led to inmates in Michigan being able to call over 150 foreign countries, when they had previously only been allowed to call North America and a handful of U.S. Territories.

Tell us about your involvement in the Trial Practice Institute (TPI), Moot Court and the Black Law Student Association (BLSA). How have these contributed to your education or employment?
Participation in Moot Court and TPI helped me to hone my skills as a litigant and gave me a purpose for why I wanted to be an attorney. These practical experiences allowed me to be innovative and creative as I sharpened my craft in the courtroom. BLSA also afforded me with many networking opportunities, allowing me to meet many attorneys in the field throughout the Midwest.

What is your advice for prospective students?
Coming to MSU College of Law from South Florida was a major adjustment and an incredible gamble, and I won big by making that decision. I’ve left meeting some of the most influential people while also getting a graduate degree. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way! Go Green, Go White!
