Legal Interest: Criminal law

My name is Kellie Harrison and I’m a 2L at Syracuse Law. I’m originally from Vestal, New York, and went to undergrad at Northeastern University. Before law school, I worked as a legal secretary for a law firm specializing in criminal, family, and divorce law.

Last summer I interned with the Legal Aid Society of San Diego where I worked in the areas of domestic violence and evictions defense.

Everyone here is willing to do whatever they can to help you succeed and I’ve already made such great friends and connections!

Syracuse is a cute town with a unique historical heritage and strong educational opportunities. I chose Syracuse University College of Law because of its excellent faculty and career services for students. It also has a great network of alumni, including the current President of the United States. After coming to Syracuse Law, I was impressed with the diverse opportunities within the campus, such as dual-degree programs with the nation’s top graduate schools like the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the Whitman School of Management, and study abroad programs to major cities around the world. I also loved my classmates who were caring, supportive, and have a loving heart for the international community.

Syracuse University College of Law was the only law school I applied to.
