Every single person I’ve met at Richmond Law has been really nice and excited about the school, from alumni to current students to faculty and staff. The dynamic here fits my personality. You hear about other law schools being cutthroat—I never got that vibe from Richmond Law, so that’s a huge reason why I wanted to come here.
