Sarah King ’18 (political science) will begin her studies at Harvard Law School in the fall of 2020. She has been working as a legislative assistant for the Indiana Senate since July 2018 and plans to seek a position as legal counsel for a federal agency when she completes her law degree.
“Law school was my plan when I started at UIndy, so my acceptance was the culmination of years working toward that goal,” King said.
She credits UIndy’s Department of Political Science with helping her jump-start her career.
“Several professors were willing to write letters of recommendation for law school applications, the Pre-Law Student Organization (with the help of Dr. David Root) helped me understand the timeline and steps of applying to law school, and a class visit from the Indiana Senate helped me get my first professional job,” she said.
