Reflection: "I did not know many lawyers when I arrived at law school, so the preceptor program, connecting us to practicing lawyers who could serve as mentors, was something unique and special. It helped to demystify the practice of law, it helped me to develop relationships with attorneys who will later become peers. It was a valuable experience, distinctive to Elon Law."
