Tell us who the Head of the Class is at your school

Top of The Class

Who’s at your Head of the Class? Do you have students doing interesting, unique, or noteworthy things while in law school? We at Student Lawyer Magazine want to hear about them.

Each issue, in our Head of the Class column, we feature a law student making a name for himself or herself outside the classroom. We’ve highlighted students running a successful side business, students who’ve appeared on Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy and those doing out-of-the-ordinary volunteer work — all while working to earn their JD.

Recent profiles have featured:

  • Yale Law School 3L Amar Bakshi, the artist behind the audiovisual “Portals” installation that connected New York and Iran
  • University of Chicago Law School 3L Kara Ingelhart, who works with LGBT youth as a Skadden Fellow
  • and Cornell Law School’s Fatmata S. Kabia, creator of a classroom magazine for teenage girls in West Africa

Please let us know about any students at your school who might be good candidates for upcoming Head of the Class columns and why. And if they’re OK with you sharing their contact information with us, please do that, too.
