“Professors here understand your needs, and the school is very accommodating. I'm a nontraditional student with four children, and I couldn't have done this if there wasn't a part-time option. I wanted to take a clinic, but my courses were overlapping. The registrar actually started a class 15 minutes early so I could fit it in.”

“Law school is a marathon; it's not a sprint. Delaware Law gave me the opportunity to compete in a mock trial, which was a great introduction. I loved it. The law faculty is very accessible. In one study group, we struggled until our faculty member took us aside and reviewed every question with us until we got it.”

“As a Wolcott fellow, I worked as a law clerk in the Supreme Court of Delaware researching and analyzing issues pending on appeal before the Court. We're exposed to a variety of advocacy styles, and you learn to build on your own strengths as an attorney. The law school has a strong network with so many connections in the local community that it gives us a great start toward our careers.”
