Andrew Bodoh ’10 is an associate with Thomas H. Roberts and Associates, P.C. in Richmond, VA. “AMSL has helped me compete in this job market by allowing me to develop my research, writing, and editing skills through Law Review; my trial and oral advocacy skills through a Moot Court competition; and by giving me connections in legal circles to develop my resume.  This is in addition to the solid legal education provided in the classroom, with a broad core curriculum, an excellent writing program, and useful electives like Complex Federal Criminal Litigation.  I am using those skills now as an attorney.”
