What I've Learned: Keenan

1. USF is a friendly environment. Make friends. Law school is a lot tougher going at it alone.

2. Make your own outlines. You learn more by writing it in your own words.

3. The legal world is EXPANSIVE and touches all aspects of this globe. Don’t be afraid to explore beyond the confines of casebooks.

4. Start your first year job search early. Especially judicial externships. Some people have interviews for judicial summer externships during winter break. Plan accordingly.

5. Don't be afraid to speak in class. There is absolutely no reason to feel intimidated. Nobody in your class actually knows what they’re talking about. If people insist they do, they are lying.

Keenan is a 3L. He is a Bay Area native, loves UCLA athletics, and is sad Arrested Development is no longer on television. John Wooden remains his hero.
