“JD Advising was a fantastic resource for both my academic and professional development during my 1L year. I was paired with a tutor who was a great resource during the first few months of my fall semester. As a first-generation student, one-on-one tutoring not only served to break down complex legal concepts but also afforded me the opportunity to learn from a tutor who had excelled during law school. Furthermore, JD Advising provided me with substantial resources during the 1L summer application process and helped me navigate the uncertainty of the first-year job placement.”
