Hi! My name is Andy Stein, and I am a third-year law student from Dodge City, Kan. I earned my undergraduate degree in Germanic languages and literatures with a minor in linguistics from the University of Kansas. My undergraduate studies have proven to be a strong foundation for the study of law. The scientific nature of linguistics combined with the critical thinking of foreign language learning complement the legal process well.

I initially became interested in law after looking into various post-graduate programs and speaking to several lawyers about the practice of law. The elements that most strongly pulled me in its direction were the ideas of having a real-life application to my work and the notion of contributing to the massive pool of thought that continues to evolve in our changing society.

KU Law appealed to me for several reasons, with a few principal factors at the forefront. The clinical programs, boasting 13 different options, immediately stood out as an opportunity to acquire real-life experience, which fit with one of my original desires for attending law school. Also, the value of KU Law played a role in my decision. Upon visiting KU Law and getting a feel for the friendly culture among students and professors, I knew this was the place for me.

I currently serve as the copy editor on the Kansas Law Review and am a member of the KU Law Moot Court Council. While at KU Law, I clerked at the U.S. District Court in Topeka as part of the Judicial Clerkship Clinic. I have argued cases in the University of Kansas Traffic Court for both the prosecution and defense. In addition to these extracurricular activities, I also regularly attend the various social events that the Student Bar Association puts on for students.

If you think you may have an interest in KU Law, I highly recommend you schedule a visit to the school so that you can see firsthand what the school has to offer. Rock chalk, Jayhawk! KU!
