A 2012 Creighton School of Law graduate–Jamal E. Jackson, J.D.–truly understands the meaning of a Jesuit education. He is using his law degree to start his own foundation to help local youths learn the law. The foundation’s main goal is to introduce children and teens from underprivileged communities to the legal field through summer internships and possibly classes at local law schools. 
 
Jackson got his undergraduate degree in Business Administration at Creighton in 2009 and then moved on to get both his MBA and his J.D. He was involved in the Black Law Students Association, the Business Law Students Association, the Moot Court Board and the National Moot Court Team. He hopes to eventually bring the program to other underprivileged neighborhoods nationwide.
