The heart of the visit was a community discussion, followed by a focused conversation with students.
 
President Robbins communicated his inclusive vision for UA, emphasizing our mission in educating students. He pointed to his wide engagement throughout the university, the wider community, and the state, and welcomed active participation in the ongoing strategic planning process

Meet Gabrielle Morlock (2L)

Gabrielle Morlock (2L) claims many hometowns. Originally from Miami, Florida, she attended high school in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and was stationed at Tucson's Davis-Monthan Air Force Base as a munitions specialist for ten years before coming to law school. Now she and her family are happy to call Arizona Law home.

Gabrielle is working on a dual JD and Master's degree in corporate finance and as an interim business intelligence manager and analyst with Tech Launch Arizona, the office that manages the university's intellectual property. Gabrielle has also been a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate for the last two years.
 
Gabrielle says that she has gained invaluable experience through her work with Tech Launch Arizona, with the college's Intellectual Property Clinic and Arizona Public Patent Program, and in moot court competitions. She's also involved in an array of clubs -- Law Parents Society, Latino/a Law Student Association, Business Law Society, Arizona IP and Cyberlaw Society, and Veterans' Law Society, holding board positions in three of those clubs. 

Of her work with the IP Clinic and Arizona Public Patent Program, Gabrielle says:
 
"Through those experiences I have provided patent research, drafted patent, trademark and copyright applications, and have been able to work directly with clients. ... I learned so much in such a limited amount of time."
 
She and her husband have four children, and her husband, who is stationed at Davis-Monthan, is often deployed. But, Gabrielle says that the UA, and the law school specifically, have provided a great environment for parents.
 
The Law Parents Society, a student organization, has been a terrific source of support:
 
"We all spend time getting to know each other and help each other when needed. I have seen parents watch the kids of other parents so that they can attend class in emergency situations. The Law Parent Society also speaks to school officials to advocate for the needs of parents and their schedules. I am a dual degree student and I work, but even with the busy schedule I find that I am able to attend class without any issues."
 
Gabrielle also appreciates the open door policy of many Arizona Law faculty, including the Dean's office (thanks, Gabrielle!), and the many opportunities to work closely with faculty and gain in-depth knowledge on special projects. In this, she says:
 
"This school is like no other and I am very grateful to be able to be a part of something so special and to be able to call myself an Arizona Law student."

Arizona Law in the News
ABA Journal, Arizona Law was the first law school to accept GRE scores as well as the traditional LSAT from applicants. 
 
 


As Gabrielle demonstrates, our students know the true meaning of the word, "busy." But even more, talking to Gabrielle, you get a sense of how the can-do spirit of our students, the approachability of our faculty, and the supportive character of the entire Arizona Law community create space not just for accomodating busy schedules but for advancing new possibilities. 

As alumni, you are a critical part of this picture.

Our community relies on you to speak with students -- and recent alums -- about career strategies and opportunities.

We rely on you to volunteer with skills teams and clinics.


And we rely on your support for scholarships, to make Arizona Law as affordable as possible for our students.
 
Warmly,
