Alumni Spotlight 🔦 ft. 18L Jonathan Murphy /// Jonathan will be representing W&L on January 29th at the University of Alabama! Prior to attending law school, Jonathan worked for a nonprofit in Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo that partnered with community leaders to provide adult education and economic development opportunities in rural villages. Since graduating from W&L Law Jonathan has become a partner with Fortif Law Partners, a boutique law firm in Birmingham, Alabama. /// “I am proud to represent W&L Law as an alumnus and would commend it to any prospective student as a law school where students are provided opportunities for real research and practice experience that will distinguish them throughout their careers for years to come. The relationships that I developed during my time at W&L, with professors and fellow students, have lasted in meaningful ways beyond graduation and continue to contribute to my personal and professional growth. W&L Law provides the ideal place, in my opinion, to not only learn the law, but to develop as a person who is equipped to effectively serve whatever community he or she will call home upon graduation.”

Young Alumni Council Spotlight 🔦 /// ft. 17L Bo Mahr “As a renewable energy attorney at Husch Blackwell in Kansas City, I get to work with a number of new laws, emerging technologies, and innovative clients. I came to W&L Law with the idea that I’d practice in an area that pushed for positive environmental change—and I certainly found that with renewables. Ending up here though is largely attributable to the student mentors, environmental and energy professors, and alumni that advocated for me both during and after law school. Which is why I continue to be involved in the Young Alumni Council, as a way to carry on the tradition of giving back and staying involved.”
