SOPHIA SHARES HOW SHE GOT INTO LAW LIBRARIANSHIP & DISCUSSES HER FAVORITE MEMBER BENEFIT

Sophia Kingsley is a Graduate Student at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona.

HOW DID YOU GET INTO LAW LIBRARIANSHIP?

I worked as a paralegal for several years while trying to decide whether or not to go to law school. Although I enjoyed some aspects of the work, such as legal research and writing, I realized that practicing law was not the best path for me. At the time, I lived very close to the Washington State Supreme Court Law Library, which prompted me to research law librarianship as a potential career. Several friends recommended the University of Arizona School of Information, which is where I am now studying, as well as interning at the Daniel F. Cracchiolo Law Library.
