Event Date



Students who dedicate themselves to the study of law leave school equipped not only to become attorneys but also to become leaders. Honing the ability to write, to make a rational argument and to excel at preparation, all pave the way for lawyers to step into leadership roles that help bring about change and shape history, according to Sarah Weddington, the winning attorney in the historic U.S. Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade.
