"Being admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States with fellow Washburn Law alumni was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. From having three of the justices take turns to meet with our group, to the exciting group activities around Washington, D.C., I will always remember that day fondly." – Bryan Walker, '10
