Oday’s fond memories of LC include: “I remember leaving class to hike in Tryon Creek State Park and appreciating the amazing and literal connection between my education and the natural environment. I remember drafting my first pleading and presenting at my first case rounds and doing my first document review at PEAC (now called Earthrise). I remember how lucky and grateful I felt at the end of each semester knowing that I’d learned this area of law from professors I so admired and in a place with such wonderful staff and students. And of course, I remember the hundreds of perfectly pulled espresso shots from all the coffee shops where I worked and studied.”
