"My decision to move from Washington, D.C. for law school was not an easy one. However from my initial encounter with Washburn Law, I knew this law school community would be warm and welcoming. The strong student friendships I've formed and the tremendous support of the professors have confirmed this is the best decision I have ever made."
Tabitha Chapman
Class of 2015
