Kristy Brumfield, a 2L civil division evening student, has recently been featured in a profile by Lawdragon campus, a legal media company which provides free online news and features to prospective and current law students and lawyers and firms.
In the limelight, Ms. Brumfield shares how she became interested in studying law and how she came to select Loyola as her law school of choice. "I chose Loyola because of its reputation. I’m referring to the fact that the legal community in New Orleans is very close-knit, and so many of the members of this community are Loyola graduates who have had extremely successful careers. I wanted to be a part of such a community for networking purposes and to make lifelong, collegial friendships. As important, Loyola Law had not only a terrific curriculum, with several proprietary offerings, but also a well-established evening program for part-time students. That has allowed me to care for my daughter and continue at Xavier teaching introductory biology for first years and a senior-level scientific literature course: basically, how to read research articles and appropriately critique the experimental methods that the scientists used."
Lawdragon Campus allows prospective law students to search for schools by where they want to attend school or by where they want to work, along with other filters, such as total costs of tuition and expenses, school accreditation status or availability of part-time programs. Students can compare and sort schools by these filters as well as by national and state employment rates, curriculum strengths and other data to assess the best value for their academic and professional interests. The site also provides daily news in legal education; features on students, law school staff and prominent alumni; financial advice, and ongoing results from the Lawdragon Law School Survey on school satisfaction.
