"My experiences at The John Marshall Law School have been invaluable. As president of the Glenn T. Johnson Chapter of the Black Law Students Association (BLSA), I witnessed first hand the dedication of this administration to diversity."

"The success of BLSA can be attributed to two things: the dedication of its members, and continuous support from the law school's staff and administration. Additionally, students receive unprecedented support from our faculty. I consider myself lucky to be a part of this law school's legacy."
