3L | Southlake, TX | University of Alabama | firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello! My name is Karly Weigel, and I am a 3L from Southlake, Texas. I graduated from the University of Alabama in May 2014. My bachelor’s degree is in political science and public relations with an English minor. I currently work at the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office in Olathe, Kansas. I specifically prosecute in the juvenile division.
During my law school search, I applied to a large number of schools. I wanted to be challenged in the classroom but also feel comfortable getting to know my professors and classmates. I was able to find that at KU Law. My class has 65 colleges represented from 26 different states. Having a diverse class in terms of background and age is one thing that makes KU unique.
Overall, I was looking for a marketable law degree to travel with me throughout my legal career. I plan on moving to another part of the country after graduation, so having a degree from a reputable school was very important to me. I believe having a KU Law degree will open doors in the future across the country.
If possible, come visit KU. I visited Lawrence during the law school preview weekend in the spring and fell in love with KU. Getting to know the faculty and other students is an invaluable experience. I was fortunate to have dinner at Dean Mazza’s house and experienced Midwestern hospitality at its finest.
If you are from the South or moving from a distant state, I’d love to talk with you about my experiences here at KU Law. Rock Chalk, Jayhawk!
