Session aims to demystify law school

The biggest adjustment to studying law was the constant consideration of right and wrong, says Brady Donohue.

“No matter what path you take, there will be ethical questions to navigate,” says the first-year student of Windsor Law.

She will share her experiences in a free public presentation, “Demystifying Law School: Advice on Applying and What to Expect in Your First Year,” Thursday, March 29, at 4:30 p.m. in room 2173, Chrysler Hall North.

Hosted by the political science department, the session is intended to help students considering law school.

Donohue is a two-time graduate of the political science program (BA 2010, MA 2011), but she says the study of law is a totally novel experience.

“It’s almost like being a first-year undergraduate again,” she says. Donohue plans to spend most of her time Thursday answering students’ questions and helping to dispel their fears.

“You get a million different people offering you advice, but all I can do is let them know what I have learned,” she says.
