Be Indivisible - Real Stories

Be a voice for change.

Have you ever wondered about pursuing a career in law, but not sure if it’s the right path? Is it hard to envision yourself as a legal professional because you’ve never seen lawyers — whether in real life or on TV — who were anything like you? Below are real stories of real people who at times felt the same way, but forged ahead with their goals, determined to achieve their dreams. Being “indivisible” means standing together in unity while appreciating the differences among us, which must be visible and honored. The individuals profiled below are at various stages of their legal education and professional journeys — all from different backgrounds with their own unique paths, united in their passion for justice. We hope their stories inspire you to move forward with your legal education journey so that you, too, can be a voice for change.
