3L  |  Topeka, KS  |  Washington University in St. Louis  |

Hi! I’m Jordan Carter, and I’m a 3L from Topeka, Kan. I graduated in 2011 from Washington University in St. Louis, where I studied women and gender studies and psychology. After graduating, I went to Boston for a year-long tutoring program at a charter middle school. I became close with my six kids, and we all learned a whole lot about algebra, grammar and keeping our emotions in check. While I was in Boston, I applied to law schools all over the country because I truly had no idea where I wanted to go next. After talking with law students and visiting campuses and reading the endless stream of available information, I found myself choosing to come back home to Kansas.

Currently, I participate in the Judicial Clinic, I’m a teaching assistant for the 1L Lawyering program, and I’m a staff member on Kansas Law Review. I spent last summer at a litigation firm in Kansas City, where I plan to return this summer. The opportunities at KU Law have been phenomenal for me, and I would love for you to visit us as you think about your future and consider your next move. This whole process can be incredibly stressful and daunting, so if you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me!
