Hi! Welcome to KU Law. My name is Rebecca Henderson. I am a 1L from Topeka, Kansas. I graduated from Pittsburg State University with a bachelor’s degree in strategic communication and a minor in political science. 

My interest in law began when I was in eighth grade and went to a trial when my dad was a juror. Even though I was only 13 years old, I knew I wanted to make a difference and had a passion to help others.

When deciding which law school to attend, I focused on the culture of the schools I visited. I am extroverted and was worried it would be a completely cut-throat environment. After my visit to KU, my mind was completely changed. I was so welcomed into the Jayhawk community before I had even decided. The faculty cares about the success of every student, and they go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to help others in their decision making process. I love being a Jayhawk and would love to help you with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you. Rock Chalk!
