3L | Wichita, KS | Wichita State University |

My name is Julia Leth-Perez, and I am a single mother of two. I am a third-year law student at the University of Kansas. I graduated with a bachelor’s in history and philosophy from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas.

As a nontraditional law student, I was concerned about getting into a law school that could meet both my academic and personal needs. During my visits to KU Law, I learned about the low student-to-professor ratio and small section sizes. The warmth and pride everyone expressed made the school stand apart from others that I visited.

In my short time at Green Hall, I have been fully able to appreciate the initial reasons I chose to attend KU. Within the first few days of school, the community of faculty and students took me in and KU became my home. Having people so welcoming and eager to help has made my transition easier. I know this is where I belong because of the quality of people that constantly surround me. I am happy to answer any questions you may have, so please feel free to ask.
