About

Future Plans: While in law school I plan on studying Business Law with a concentration in Private Equity and Venture Capital Law, as well as Legal Regulations of Investment Companies. During law school I hope to become involved with the Criminal Litigation Field Clinic to assist the Defender Association of Philadelphia, as well as participate as a part of the Drexel Law Review and Mock Trial team. After law school I plan on becoming an associate attorney at a Philadelphia law firm as well as continue to support the inner community in pro bono work.

How did Ursinus prepare me for law school: Ursinus prepared me for law school: Ursinus offered a liberal arts education that allowed me to harness my critical thinking ability and drastically improve my writing skills. Ursinus also allowed for the creation of internships and networking opportunities that were invaluable to my experiences as an undergraduate student that helped me reach the next level of my educational journey.

Involvement: Men’s Swim Team, VP of Pre-Law Society, STAT (Students Today Alumni Tomorrow), & Co-Founder of the Student Managed Investment Fun

Interesting Fact: I have a little brother Ben who is a Freshman at Ursinus and I could not be more proud to watch his educational journey!

Favorite Ursinus Memory

My most memorable moment in class was Economics Research Methods where Professor Parnell supported and encouraged me to be entrepreneurial and build a business model that I hope to one day turn into a company and federally registered investment product.
