Year: 2L (Class of 2017)

Experiences between college and law school: I was a paralegal at a criminal defense law firm in Atlanta, GA for a year. For the summer immediately preceding law school, I worked at a colonial-themed restaurant in Gettysburg, PA. I still have the knickers.

Favorite class: Contracts with Professor Rogers. He always kept class entertaining and I really enjoyed the material.
- Foley Hoag (2L Summer)

What will you do after graduation? I am not positive what type of practice area I would like to end up in, but at this point I am leaning towards corporate. I am looking forward to exploring more opportunities to learn about different types of practice areas next summer.
Why law school? For the combination of an intense intellectual challenge and the opportunity to help people solve difficult problems.
Why BC Law? I chose BC Law for several reasons – chief among them the location in Boston and the job placement rates. I really like the suburban setting of the school in conjunction with very easy access to downtown Boston. Also, when I visited, I just got the sense that people actually enjoyed being here.
What most surprised you about BC Law when you got here? I was surprised at just how willing professors were to go out of their way to help students. Law school professors on TV are portrayed as pretty demanding and unforgiving, and while they certainly have high expectations for their students, BC Law professors are always supportive and seeking to educate us as effectively as possible.
Justin Beegle is a 2L 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!
