“The truth is the people you’re meeting now are likely going to be in your lives for a very, very long time, and that, as far as I’m concerned, is a great thing.”

Mario L. Barnes, Toni Rembe Dean and Professor of Law

Watch as UW Law leaders share personal experiences from their first days as law students and welcome the newest Law Dawgs to the pack.
