Attending UConn Law is a smart investment. We are an outcomes-based institution that is proud of the value associated with our law degree:
Since graduating last year, I've seen some of my classmates work in the Superior Court, the Appellate Court, and the Supreme Court of Connecticut. UConn has set us up for success in that it provides various different external learning opportunities such as externships and clinics. The clinical experience has prepared me for working outside of law school by providing real life experiences such as writing briefs, having client interaction, all of which if you're going into a litigation atmosphere you're gonna be prepared for.
We start early on with students. We encourage them to come and talk to us broadly about what their interests are, and we can help to guide them on the basis of that conversation. The school has taken a more active role in supporting students in the bar. In my office at the careers office we work actively with the local bar examining committee. And then in addition, the school has been working hard to make sure our students are well supported in their preparation.
We have students that are at the very top of the market, and we also students who are choosing other kinds of paths that may not compensate at that level but may provide other kinds of benefits, more work-life balance, or an opportunity to serve their community. And I think that this degree is gonna serve them and provide mobility to them throughout their entire careers.
