After graduating, I plan on going to Japan for 6+ months, if allowed, to study the Japanese language. I have taken the LSAT and plan on applying for law school at the University of Michigan. There I will get my J.D. with a focus in International and Comparative Law. I will simultaneously enroll in the Masters in International and Regional Studies program (with a focus on Japanese Studies).
My time spent in the paralegal program has been extremely advantageous. I have made many connections and have gained knowledge in many areas or law by leaps and bounds. My time in the paralegal program has left me with the feeling that I am far more prepared now, after taking the various classes offered, than I ever would have been otherwise. This program has allowed me to obtain a solid career as a fallback plan. I now have the confidence to succeed in my future legal endeavors.
