Law Student, Baylor Law
I graduated from Wyoming Catholic College in the spring of 2022 and I am now in the middle of my 2L year at Baylor Law in Waco, Texas. Upon graduating with my Juris Doctorate, I will spend a year clerking for a Federal Judge in the Western District of Texas, and when I finish that year, I plan on becoming a prosecutor in Texas. My long-term goal is to work as an Assistant United States Attorney prosecuting human trafficking crimes, especially sex trafficking of children.
I have already been incredibly grateful for the liberal arts education I received at WCC during my first year and a half at law school and I know I will only grow in gratitude for it going forward. My time studying at WCC formed my sense of justice through philosophy, the Church’s Social Teachings, and the political and literary works of the humanities track. Most importantly, however, WCC encouraged me to think deeply about what it means to fully give your life to Christ and live out incarnational love. It was that reflection that planted the seeds that would mature into my love of criminal law because it is a career where I can serve those with a great need for justice and Christ-like love.
WCC prepared me not just to think deeply about the true, the good, and the beautiful, but to live in accordance with those principles.
