Hometown: Memphis, Tennessee
Undergraduate school and major: I attended undergraduate at the University of Memphis where I earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a minor in criminal justice.
Why I chose to pursue the MSL degree: I decided to pursue Wake Forest Law’s Master of Studies in Law degree because of the flexibility of distance learning while still being able to develop analytical and reasoning skills.
What I like about Wake Forest Law’s MSL: The courses are aggressively up-to-date. Each topic receives careful and comprehensive treatment. While some courses may be challenging, they also provide a great thought-provoking learning experience. They also provide a well-rounded, but in-depth understanding of the law. I enjoy having an environment where I can work with professionals from all over the world, rich online databases and online tools combined with the possibility to study from wherever I am. I can travel with my studies and learn at any time of the day. All I need is dedication and a computer.
Applying MSL to my career: The program is very well devised: coherent and wide-ranging. More importantly, it is rigorous and challenging and the professors are amazingly helpful. Upon completion of the program, I will have a new horizon of career options. Through the program I have been able to obtain a more in-depth knowledge of law for certain areas that are of interest to me. The skills and knowledge I have gained so far have proven to be most valuable to me in my position as a paralegal and a small business owner. I am very glad that I opted for this program.
