Hi! My name is Brian Mathay, and I am a third-year law student from Denver. I attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah and received a bachelor's in social science, secondary education. At BYU, I also played for the men’s MCLA lacrosse team. After I finished my degree, I moved back to Denver, where I worked for three years at Valor Christian High School.

I’ve always been drawn to a new challenge that pushes me farther than I thought I could go. In my personal life, this has expressed itself in finding the next great adventure. Professionally, I felt the same desire to seek a career that would always push my mental limits, while also giving me an opportunity to make the world a little better. So a career in law was my natural choice to satisfy both of those desires.

A career in law means a lifetime of learning, of approaching new problems and finding creative solutions. KU has done an extraordinary job of teaching me the skills and knowledge to succeed in the legal profession. Interning for the Colorado Court of Appeals last summer was an opportunity for me to see how well KU has already prepared me to become an outstanding lawyer. I left that experience very grateful to return to Green Hall to continue my education and training.

KU Law has provided incredible classmates and faculty to make this journey as productive and enjoyable as possible. The faculty and staff here truly care for the student body; so don’t be surprised when you find professors asking you about more than just your studies. Classmates have become friends, and I find myself looking forward to every day at Green Hall. Just one walk around the school and you, too, will feel the camaraderie that makes KU Law so special. I look forward to helping you make the choice to attend KU Law. Please feel free to ask me any questions you might have.
