Meet the Ambassador: Allison Walsh

Name: Allison Walshunnamed

Year: 1L (Class of 2018)

Undergraduate institution: Fairfield University, Class of 2013, graduated cum laude; Deans List: 2010-2013; All-Academic Team 2009-2013; English Honors Society

Experiences between college and law school: I was a paralegal at Weil, Gotshal & Manges in New York City.

Activities at BC Law (besides being an Ambassador): I am section representative for Sports and Entertainment Club and a member of the business law club.

Favorite class: My favorite class is Property with Professor Lyons. He is an amazing professor and illustrates how applicable the subject is to every facet of the law.

What do you hope to do after graduation? I hope to work at a firm concentrating in sports and entertainment law.

Why law school? I always was interested in law school, but it didn’t resonate with me until college that law was a true passion of mine until I took a business ethics course. I was extremely interested in the cases we learned about, like Ford Pinto.

Why BC Law? I believed the community at large was welcoming, supportive and successful. I was also drawn in by the campus’ proximity to Boston, while simultaneously maintaining the benefit of being on a beautiful campus with a close-knit community.

What most surprised you about BC Law when you got here? While I recognized before coming to BC that the community was welcoming and supportive, I didn’t realize the extent of it. Everyone at BC wants you to succeed and is willing to help in any way they can. From the professors to older students and to the faculty advisors, everyone is working together to make your experience as seamless and positive as possible.

Boston College Law Ambassadors is a newly launched program designed to enhance the on-campus experience for every prospective student who visits BC Law. The Ambassadors are thirty students who lead campus tours, help out at Admitted Students Day, and serve as a resource for applicants and admitted students who are considering enrolling at BC Law.

In support of this role, each Ambassador will be profiled on the Impact blog over the course of the school year. If you are a prospective student and notice something about any of our Ambassadors that you’d like to discuss with him or her – whether it’s a shared alma mater, an interesting extracurricular, or an appealing summer job – do not hesitate to reach out. After all, that’s what we’re here for!
