University of Richmond 1L Willing to take questions

Postby cevaugha » Wed Nov 07, 2012 12:29 pm

I am currently a 1L at Richmond Law and also and LSAR for the school (law school admission representative) anyone who has admissions questions or questions about the University should feel free to ask any questions they have. :lol:

yeah, I've seen that one and I really don't agree with the OP.

We do have a new head of career development this year and she has done a lot to reach out to even the 1L class already about our options and opportunities. We actually have a lot of clinical placements and options here. We have also already had many networking events that are connecting current students with powerful alums. I know I have already made some valuable connections. I think the person who wrote that post was someone who wanted to sit back and have the law school do everything for him. It has been made clear to us that jobs will not be handed to us but that career services is there to guide our job search. Also the class listing information is just false, there are tons of classes offered here, far more than 12 a semester. I have had experiences here already in the first couple months that I am excited and happy about. We even had supreme court justice Kagan come and speak to us!

I think the one thing I have really noticed about the Richmond faculty is how much they care about the students and want us to succeed.

There is not a lack of seating and all tables have plugs for computers. There are only 50 people in my largest class and that room seats 80. Also, one of the nicest things about Richmond is that everyone gets a carrel even 1Ls and I love having my own space in the law school.

Overall I definitely don't agree with that post and think the information in it is skewed by the bias of the writer


Hope this helps
