In this episode, a lawyer discusses her journey from a state law school, to being a prosecutor, to running her own practice specializing in criminal defense. She was waitlisted or rejected by every law school she applied to, but she applied again in the next cycle and received an offer of admission. Attending a state law school and commuting from home gave her the opportunity to save money and obtain her law degree without incurring a lot of debt. She describes her experiences as a white woman attending a historically black law school as "the best experience that she could have imagined." We hope you enjoy listening to her story.
