Hey there prospective students! My name is Justin and I’m joining Kailey as the newest 1L student blogger. If you are reading this, it is likely that you are considering Washington University for law school, so congratulations! Wash U is a great place to spend three years, and I hope that my blogging (along with the great stuff Kailey has already blogged about) will help give you an idea of what going to school here at Wash U Law is like.
I grew up in central Illinois and attended Millikin University for undergrad (ten points to anyone who has actually heard of it!) Besides romantic poetry and long walks on the beach, I enjoy politics, sports (go Cardinals!), hunting, and cooking. I hope to spend my career in the courtroom doing litigation, but I am not 100% certain what areas I would like to go into. I am very interested in criminal and tort work at this point, but I am sure I will be like most law students and change my mind multiple times before I graduate.
My goal is to put up a new blog post every few weeks, but I will definitely be checking in periodically to answer any questions you may have. If you want to get in on the conversation, feel free to post a comment below my posts and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.
Thanks for reading, and come back to visit soon!
