Massachusetts Attorney General, Martha Coakley, delivered the keynote address to jump start the Pathways to Practice class. She spoke with us about her path to becoming the AG, issues of professionalism and ethics, and her 6 tips for success at our first co-op and in our future career. Not only was she extremely personable, knowledgeable, and intelligent, she is really funny too! I also loved her bright orange blazer.Bennett Klein, Senior Attorney and AIDS Law Project Director at Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) spoke with my Constitutional Law class about the current fight for equal rights. He was counsel in Kerrigan & Mock v. Department of Public Health, GLAD’s 2008 victory in the Connecticut Supreme Court ruling that the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage is unconstitutional. Super informative and inspiring.
Great day to be a 1L at NUSL!
