What do you hope to do after graduation? I hope to work in the field of environmental or energy law, either through litigation or by helping develop regulations and policy. I am interested in pursuing a field of law where I can occasionally draw on my background in science.
Why law school? As a political science and biology double major in college, I was searching for a way to merge my disciplines. I saw law school as an opportunity to work on the crucial legal issues in fields like environmental and health law. That was an ideal possibility I just couldn’t pass up.
Why BC Law? Boston College stood out among potential schools because of its incredibly strong reputation, in both the corporate and public interest worlds. I knew I wanted to keep an open mind coming into law school, and felt that BC would help me achieve success no matter what career path I chose.
What most surprised you about BC Law when you got here? When I got to BC I was shocked by the amount of support that Career Services provides 1Ls. Coming straight through from undergrad, I was afraid my job application skills would not be as polished as they should be. However, from individual meetings to the 1L Bootcamp sessions, Career Services ensures every BC Law student is ready to apply for their dream internship.
Kurtis Brown is a 1L at BC Law and a BC Law Ambassador. Feel free to contact him with questions about his experience, BC Law, or law school in general. Comment here or send him an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
