Sally Johnson (ficticious)

Sally Johnson received a degree in Philosophy prior to coming to law school. She has always loved helping people with their problems, and she believes that she would like to start her own small firm so she can help individuals with their legal problems. She thinks her focus will likely be on criminal and family law matters. Because of this, she decided to craft a broad curriculum that would prepare her well for small firm practice with an emphasis on criminal and family law. She also wants to build professional skills and prepare to take a bar exam. Here are the courses she selected while a second and third year law student.
