For this edition of Texas Law’s Student Spotlight series, meet 1L Emma Edmund!
Q: How did your time as Editor In Chief of The Daily Northwestern help prepare or inspire you for law school?
Q: What has made you feel part of the Texas Law community?
I’ve been impressed by the spirit of collaboration at Texas Law. No matter what room I walk into, I’ve always felt that I can ask for help when I need it, and that if someone doesn’t know the answer to my question, we’ll figure it out together. It’s been wonderful to step into a community that’s as open and inviting as Texas Law, and that has helped me feel like a part of the community from day one.
Q: What’s the most interesting class you’ve taken at the law school?
This probably comes as no surprise from the person who was a journalism major, but I really enjoy Legal Analysis and Communication with Prof. Bridges. The class, which teaches you to think and write like a lawyer, is both practical and helpful. I’ve developed a number of skills in that class I know I’ll use as a lawyer, such as finding relevant law through research and writing a short-but-clear memo for a supervisor. Legal Analysis and Communication has also given me the analytical skills necessary to understand material in my other classes, which makes the course perfect for my first semester in law school.
