Most rewarding aspects of your engagement with the UC Hastings community
Hearing from students and members of our community; learning about the outstanding work our faculty and centers are doing to advance both legal scholarship and practice.
A particularly meaningful experience as a mentor
My husband (also a Hastings alum) and I have been hosting “6@6” gatherings at our home for years: we have a half-dozen students over for dinner and conversation about law school and legal careers. The event always reminds us how excited and optimistic we felt as law students.
Particularly meaningful honors or awards
