Hi! My name is Christy Harris and I am a 1L from Dallas. I attended Texas A&M University – Commerce and graduated with a bachelor's degree in social work and a master's degree in business management.
After graduating with my master’s in 2012, I worked in a variety of fields, from commercial real estate to non-profit management and governmental support. Those experiences not only revealed areas in which I felt needed reform, but they were also the driving force in finally achieving my dream of becoming a lawyer.
As a non-traditional student and mom of three, it was important for me to find a law school that not only fostered professional growth but was inclusive and cared about the experiences and challenges of their student body. Throughout the entire enrollment process, every single person I spoke to, whether they were a dean, student ambassador or support professional, made me feel heard, supported and welcomed. I felt like I belonged at KU.
Entering law school can be an intimidating experience. However, if it aligns with your passion, you can make it happen! If you have any questions about attending KU School of Law, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am here to encourage and support you, in any way that I can!
