The first case we worked on was a multi-million dollar case and it was really cool to participate in the discovery process. We have learned so much! I am so happy with my decision to go to Baker for my education. It has taken me so far in such a short amount of time. I owe so much of my success to my teachers! Thank you for everything! I cannot say enough good things about my experience!
