1L | Springfield, Missouri | University of Kansas | Simjohal@ku.edu
Hi everyone! My name is Sim Johal. I am a 1L from Springfield, Missouri. I recently graduated from the University of Kansas with bachelor’s degrees in political science and American studies and a minor in African American studies.
I first realized that I was interested in law after learning about landmark cases in my high school government class. My passion to attend law school grew substantially during my time as an undergraduate. I began taking classes focused on the criminal justice system and mass incarceration, which helped me realize that I wanted to pursue a career in criminal defense.
Picking a law school was a very stressful time for me. My visit to KU Law was memorable and helped me realize why I should stay in Lawrence. KU Law has a very welcoming and inclusive environment. The class sizes are small and engaging. Every day I encounter supportive classmates, professors and staff. Also, Lawrence is an amazing college town! Please feel free to reach out to me or any other ambassadors if you have questions about KU Law or any questions about law school in general. I would love to help. Rock Chalk!
