"We heard from tons of attorneys that practice in different areas of the law — education, tax, corporate, employment — and I was able to speak to some current SLU Law students. Since I’ve gotten back (from St. Louis), every time I have a chance to talk to Ellen Burti, I thank her for forwarding me the email to apply."
