Summertime's Right Around the Corner

Summer cannot come fast enough. First of all, summer means that final exams are over and, unless you are taking summer courses, no exams for a couple of months. The first week of summer break is pretty much dedicated to the write-on competition for law review. For those of you that are unsure what law review actually is and its importance, do not fret! As a first-generation law student, I honestly had no idea what the importance of law review was. Basically, law review is a student organization that provides the opportunity to publish articles on a variety of legal issues. Loyola is pretty unique because it has three separate law reviews accepting applicants. Although it’s very competitive to be accepted, it looks prestigious on a resume and helps you stand out to employers.

After the competition, I will be getting my start in the entertainment industry. For anyone who knows me at all, you would know that I have wanted to work in entertainment since before I can remember. Beginning this semester, I am finally going to be able to live out that dream. I will be working as an intern for Paradigm Talent Agency.

As for myself, I have no doubt that being a J.D. student at Loyola is one of the main reasons that I have been able to secure summer employment for a company which I have respected for the better part of my life. As a law school with one of the most prestigious entertainment concentrations in the country, Loyola has opened the door for networking opportunities. For example, I made a connection during a casual conversation in which I discussed being a 1L student at Loyola. Through the networking process, this connection led to the introduction to someone with strong connections within the industry. If I had never discussed being a Loyola student, this networking opportunity would have never arisen. For all of you considering Loyola for your law school education, I would just like to leave you with one final thought. At Loyola, professors care, students actually learn, and the networking opportunities you will be exposed to could change your entire life.
