3L  |  Paola, KS  |  University of Kansas  |

Hi! My name is Samantha Wagner, I am a 3L from Paola, Kansas. I attended the University of Kansas as an undergraduate and majored in American studies and religious studies. I am one the first members of the Legal Education Accelerated Degree (LEAD) program, which means that I’ll complete the fourth year of my undergraduate degree at KU Law.

As a LEAD student, I started law school in May without a bachelor’s degree. Beginning law school so early was pretty nerve-racking, but KU Law has made the transition easier than I ever imagined.

I would love to answer any questions you may have about the LEAD program or coming into KU Law after graduating early.
