"I'm gratified to say that by getting through the course I found myself becoming more certain that I'm on the right track as a future lawyer. From reading and analyzing each case, I learned what I would encounter in the upcoming semesters and had an opportunity to think about how I can deal with it. The courses will be tough but I'm looking forward to advancing myself by learning from the cases."
