MLS Student Ryan Carter

I didn't want to live the rest of my life without giving a go at the study of law, which I also think can help me personally and professionally. I'm really looking forward to being in the UCLA Law environment.

I put graduate studies on the shelf until I came across a program that best fit my needs and interests. I stopped putting grad school on the back burner when I learned about this program.
