Alphonso Eason
"The education I received from KU and the skill set developed at KU Law have served me well in my current position."

“I’m still working in the same area of law almost 10 years after graduation from KU Law. In 2002, I applied for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Legal Honors Internship program.”

”In my current role, I have an opportunity to ensure persons are not discriminated against in the area of housing. I find the work very satisfying. The education I received and the skill set developed at KU Law have served me well in my current position.”
