Polimeni for 2L President- Valuing the Complete Student
You are more than a law student.
I said it! We may all feel that our academic success is our identity right now. There is so much more about you that I recognize and value- and that may need to be supported for you to be successful in law school.
I understand. You have to get that summer experience, and that GPA range, and make it to office hours, and finish that chapter.
I want to bring your wellness to the forefront.
Are you really okay?
Are your kids, parents, or significant experiencing difficulty that is pulling your attention from your studies?
Do you have financial concerns that are suffocating you?
Are you getting out of the house?
Have you made any friends in law school?
Are you trying to juggle work with your law school experience?
Have you had to work through a large life event since taking the jump to come to law school?
Are you struggling with a physical or mental disability that has made a traditional approach to learning the law substantially more challenging?
These are questions that I haven’t been asked, and these are things that matter. I want to open the stage for all of us to answer these questions and connect through our shared humanity.
We all deserve to have a law school experience that we enjoy and value. It would be my honor to serve as your president and facilitate a meaningful and memorable law school experience for all of us.
