What originally attracted me to the USC Gould School of Law was the school's small class sizes and community feel. USC's Post Conviction Justice Project (PCJP) and the Saks Institute for Mental Health Law, Policy, and Ethics both provided the perfect interdisciplinary areas that I was looking to immerse myself into. Law school provided me with a new pair of eyes that I didn't have before, and taught me to examine issues from a variety of viewpoints starting from personal and cultural to ethical and global. Being involved with programs such as the PCJP provided me with firsthand legal experience that I could not have obtained elsewhere. I knew I made the right decision when I was able to help obtain parole for my client at her hearing, and allow her to live out the rest of her life as a free woman.
