3L  |  Austin, TX  |  Midwestern State University  |  amanda.angell@ku.edu

My name is Amanda Angell, and I am a third-year law student at the University of Kansas. I graduated with a bachelor’s in music from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas in 2004 and worked as an assistant band director and an elementary music teacher for the Austin Independent School District in Austin, Texas.

As a nontraditional law student embarking on a new career, not only was I concerned with getting into a quality program where I could thrive, but I also had to weigh the needs of my family. I considered attending many great law schools in Texas and the Midwest, but after visiting KU and seeing how tight-knit and collegial the law school community was, the clinical opportunities that were offered, the low student-to-professor ratio, and small section sizes, I knew that KU Law would be an excellent choice for me.  During my visit, faculty and members of the community were kind enough to give me the inside scoop on how great it is to live and raise children in Lawrence, which cemented my decision to attend.

Now, after experiencing KU Law and Lawrence firsthand, I can tell you with confidence that the university is incredible, the public schools are fantastic, the cost of living is very reasonable, and the town is definitely quirky enough to keep things interesting.

I’m incredibly happy to be studying law at the University of Kansas, and my family loves Lawrence. I am happy to answer any questions you may have, so please feel free to ask.
