Professional Path

"I graduated from Harvard Law School in May 2018. I am starting work this fall as a litigation associate at the New York office of Paul, Weiss."

How has AMES helped?

"Two factors about AMES affected my decision to go to law school. First, I appreciated the fact that I was able to explore a wide range of different topics, ranging from ancient Japanese history to modern Korean cinema and literature. I really enjoyed the extent of freedom and choice I had within my major. Second, AMES allowed me to pursue my other interests concurrently. I double majored in AMES and History and also minored in Political Science and it was possible in part because of how flexible AMES course requirements were."
