LAW STUDENT PROFILE
Sola Lee, originally from Anchorage, Alaska, will graduate from the University of Oregon School of Law on May 19, 2012.
Lee chose Oregon Law because she wanted to be close to home, and since Alaska does not have any law schools, she knew it was the perfect fit. She was also lucky enough to receive a scholarship from the university.
Lee’s most rewarding experience from Oregon Law is obtaining her J.D. She admits that the past three years have been very tough and taxing .
“I am proud of the journey I’ve had as a law student, and I think I’ve grown as a person,” she remarked.
Aside from finishing her first year of law school, Lee says her favorite memory at Oregon Law is attending the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association Convention in Atlanta.
“I met attorneys and judges of Asian Pacific American decent, and it was great to see those individuals excelling in their fields of law.”
Lee has been a very active law student, participating in many different extracurricular activities. She attended conventions in Atlanta and Los Angeles with the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association. She also was active in the Sports and Entertainment Law Forum (SELF). Lee says the conferences SELF organized were awakening to all of the issues she did not previously consider in the field of sports and entertainment law. She also was a part of the Student Bar Association and the Law and Entrepreneurship Law Student Association.
Lee also thanks Oregon Law for assisting her in pursuing her career goals.
“Ever since I was little, I’ve wanted to be an attorney. Now I’m one step closer. I would like to pursue a career in the sports and entertainment field, and having a J.D. background shows I am a dedicated and hard worker.”
Earning a degree from the University of Oregon School of Law is a great achievement. The law school is part of one of the nation’s leading research universities and, based on reputation, is the top ranked school in the state of Oregon, and the second in the Pacific Northwest. The law school also has four nationally top- ranked specialty programs in which students learn and prosper from the highly qualified faculty that work within them. Oregon Law lets students thrive in its close-knit community and encourages students to make the school their second home.
After graduation Lee plans to work in sports and entertainment as an attorney or an agent. She thanks her entire family and close friends for their support and encouragement throughout the past three years.
