I am a current law student at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo pursuing a Juris Doctor degree.  

 

My passion for the legal field has persisted since I was a child.  I have had multiple internships in courts, law offices, and governmental agencies during high school and during my undergraduate studies at the State University of New York at Binghamton.  I plan to continue to gain as much practical experience within the legal field during my academic studies at SUNY Buffalo.

 

It is my hope that this blog will provide you with local, national and even international legal issues, information, and current events that affect you.
