Meet Our Law Ambassadors

We’re here for support and encouragement.

Think law school will be contentious? Cutthroat? Competitive? Not at Creighton School of Law. Here we believe in the idea that we’re all in this together—for The Greater Good. That philosophy is exemplified by our Law Ambassadors. This volunteer student organization assists administration with admissions and alumni events. It is open to all Creighton law students.

Why did you choose Creighton Law School?
I chose Creighton School of Law because I loved the environment. The faculty and staff are very friendly, available, and accessible. I wanted to be a student the faculty knew, as opposed to blank face in a lecture hall.

How do you think Creighton’s Law School has prepared you for the future?
Creighton has provided me a very comprehensive legal education. I have had the opportunity to participate in various classes which have prepared me for the real world, including moot court and trial team. Creighton does more than teach you how to get through class, it teaches you how to succeed in the future.

Beyond Law Ambassadors, what are you involved in?
I am a member of Phi Alpha Delta, a legal fraternity. I also Tutor 1Ls in Torts and Criminal Law.

How do you think Creighton’s law school has prepared you for your future?
My experience at Creighton has been wonderful! I came to Creighton because I felt like I would fit in, because the professors and staff seemed to really care, and because of the school’s great reputation, especially in the Midwest legal community. Right away, the school far exceeded those initial judgments, and it has continued to exceed those expectations as I have developed relationships with professors, gotten more involved with the schools, created lifelong friendships with my peers, and obtained an excellent job.  

How do you feel about being a Law Ambassador?
One of the things that immediately drew me to Creighton was the tour given when I visited. The Law Ambassador that gave me the tour was not only very knowledgeable and helpful with my hundreds of questions, but she was also personable and passionate. I’m excited to be a Law Ambassador because I get the opportunity to carry on that welcoming passion to other prospective students!

Why should a prospective student choose Creighton School of Law?
A prospective student should choose Creighton School of Law because the people here are great! The professors truly have an open door policy and are extremely welcome to questions relating to law school or just life in general–some even provide their personal phone numbers! The students are competitive, but the competition is not cutthroat, and we all want everyone to succeed and are willing to help each other, without question. Finally, you will not find more welcoming and friendly staff members (with candy available around every corner), and the Career Development staff members are great in helping us find the perfect job!

What has your experience been like at Creighton?
The atmosphere of the law school is relaxed. One of the most important things to me about Creighton Law is that the professors are very approachable. They make a point to know who you are and what goals you may have. Creighton also offers many opportunities to assist with the growth of my legal career beyond academics.

How do you feel about being a Law Ambassador?  
I have the opportunity to meet potential students and explain why Creighton Law is such a great place to be. I also enjoy assisting the visitors with any questions or concerns they have.

How do you think Creighton has prepared you for your future?
The 1L curriculum and 2L core classes provides a great legal base for students. After taking these classes, I am able to apply what I have learned through practical experiences such as externships, mentor programs, and employment.
