"I am a first-generation college student, which made coming to law school very intimidating. Once getting acquainted with the faculty and professors, I truly felt like I belonged. The small class sizes have been very beneficial. I find it easier to grasp the material and it allows me the opportunity to build one-on-one relationships with my professors and peers. Washburn Law feels like home!"

The focus on these skills have enhanced every other facet of my legal education and I'm grateful for the solid foundation I now have going forward in my career."

"As an older, non-traditional student I am fortunate to have chosen Washburn Law. A native Texan, I have felt welcome in Topeka and Washburn from the first day I walked on campus. The collegial environment fosters real cooperation among the student body, and everyone I interact with daily wants to see everyone succeed, and it shows in their actions. Washburn School of Law has a nationally recognized curriculum, but what sets it apart is how truly welcome the staff, Deans, Professors, and fellow students make you feel. Washburn is like my extended family already!"
