My favorite memory

The first time I was right while getting cold-called!

William Bardgett

WILLIAM BARDGETT

My favorite class

Intellectual Property, with Professor Sean Owens was a great course. I gained a lot of practical knowledge and useful skills, and everyone made it a class worth waking up for.

My favorite memory

During 1L year, when classes were scheduled close to each other, many of us would spend the time between them sitting in the classroom and getting to know each other. We talked, we ate, we laughed, we even sang and played board games. At a time when I was uncertain whether law school was worth pursuing, my classmates made me appreciate the community that we were forming, and drove me to accomplish more than I ever thought I could. I will always appreciate that.

What I am looking forward to

Many pre-pandemic plans have fallen through, but I am taking this as an opportunity to seek out the right fit for my area of expertise. No matter where I end up, I know that my degree has given me the analytical and administrative skills to land in a career that will be worth the effort.


 
Erin Melcher Beam

ERIN MELCHER BEAM

My favorite class

My favorite class was my Semester in Practice at the Children’s Law Center over the Summer of 2019, with Professor Amy Halbrook and Professor Susie Bookser. Professors Halbrook and Bookser tailored my experience to allow my recovery from major surgery while giving me the opportunity to drive our caseload forward and lead cases as a student attorney. Their gentle guidance built my confidence and capabilities in a profession brand-new to me after decades in global marketing with large corporations.

My favorite memory

My favorite memory is a montage image with my colleagues who are so young that I could literally be their mother. Because it is hard to select from this lovely montage of friends, I offer these:

• When colleague Tim Real told me how he was going to propose to our classmate and my study buddy Tori Link on their cruise during spring break of our 3L year – and then seeing Tori’s delight when he did.

• When my eldest daughter attended my classes with me, my colleagues embraced us, making us both feel so special by engaging with her on her thoughts on law and politics. They held court with her, and we laughed until it hurt. (We laughed even more when we took their advice and watched the hip comedy specials they recommended.)

• Watching Professor Doyle and Professor Burton deftly challenge students who were either unable to support their opinions in legal bases or were unprepared. They managed to do it in a way that both instructs and empowers.

What I am looking forward to

I want to establish a legal clinic for women and girls to provide individual representation, impact litigation and policy advocacy that protects and advances their rights. I have been dismayed by how some of my fellow citizens have reverted to the antiquated xenophobic and misogynistic agendas and mantras that were unthinkable when I was a child.

I want to help reverse this tide by providing no-cost and low-cost legal services and advocacy for women’s rights to improve the odds that my daughters – and other girls who may now be isolating at home while hungry or otherwise struggling through this pandemic – might enjoy rights equal to my son in their lifetimes.


 
Jarrod Bentley

JARROD BENTLEY

My favorite class

Environmental Law.

My favorite memory

My favorite memory was when I got the call during my Criminal Law class that my wife was going into labor. It was being taught by then Professor Whiteman, who noticed me franticly throwing my book and laptop into my bag to make a silent exit from the back of the room. He stopped lecturing, smiled, and said, “Is it time?!” He shouted out congratulations and good luck, with the whole class then watching me stumble out the back door. It was truly an unforgettable moment.

What I am looking forward to

I am looking forward to practicing environmental law in Kentucky, hoping that an opportunity to do so opens up in the very near future.

My favorite memory

I would like to practice in estate planning.

Haley Damron

HALEY DAMRON

My favorite class

My favorite class was my field placement this spring semester. Everything finally clicked once I was able to put what I learned the last three years into practice in an actual legal position.

My favorite memory

My best memory has been making friends I will keep for a lifetime. I couldn’t have made it through the last three years without our study sessions, undeserved study breaks and pep talks.

What I am looking forward to

I am looking forward to putting my law degree to use by attaining experience to help secure jobs and industries in my hometown in Eastern Kentucky.

Brittany Ellis

BRITTANY ELLIS

My favorite class

My favorite class was 1L Torts, with Professor Honabach. I learned so much, including what it really meant to be prepared for class. It was quite the experience, to say the least. I hope future students get the chance to learn from Professor Honabach.

My favorite memory

It’s a tie between all of the great memories made with my group of law school friends and competing in trial team competitions.

What I am looking forward to

I’m so excited to work in public service and advocate on behalf of others in the courtroom.

My favorite class

My favorite class was Sexuality, Identity and the Law, with Professor Harrison. Professor Harrison is a great professor, and the class was very interesting in terms of talking about controversial topics. 

My favorite memory

My favorite memory was the Barristers Ball, 1L year. I love all of the wonderful friends I have made in school, and that was the first time we really got to hangout as a group.

What I am looking forward to

Honestly, just working. I have been in school for 19 years and I am more than ready to not be in school any longer. 


 
Marian Graves

MARIAN GRAVES

My favorite classes

Constitutional Law, with Professor Bickers, for overall educational and entertainment value. I will never forget the plague mask. (Among the costumes Professor Bickers wears when he teaches at Halloween is a reproduction of a menacing bird-like mask some European doctors wore during the bubonic plague years of the 14th and 15th centuries.) My second favorite was Evidence, with Professor Stephens.

My favorite memory

In June 2016, at a pro bono divorce clinic right before school started, I met my classmate and study buddy I sat next to every single day through the entire four years of evening classes. It turned out we didn’t even qualify for earning pro bono hours at the time! … And not being able to say “declarant” properly in Evidence class. By the way, it’s “deCLARant.”

What I am looking forward to

Combining my JD with my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine to pursue opportunities in my current industry or in a related area of law, perhaps in corporate, Food and Drug Administration/Center for Veterinary Medicine, or otherwise. Possibly working part-time in a general practice focused on family and/or elder law. Personally, trying to help advocate for improvement in Kentucky animal law. Lastly, donating a commercial coffee dispenser to Nunn Hall for when Starbucks is closed!

VICTORIA LINK

My favorite classes

My favorite classes were Constitutional Law, with Professor Bickers, and the Constitutional Litigation Clinic, with Professor Singleton. Learning complex case law about the foundations of our legal system, and then seeing that law applied, was challenging and exciting. 

My favorite memory

My favorite memory was working with the Ohio Justice & Policy Center in the Constitutional Litigation Clinic. I think we all rose to the challenge of taking the lead on our cases, and we also had fun doing it. 

What I am looking forward to

I look forward to a long career in public interest law, wherever that may take me.

Kati Massey

KATI MASSEY

My favorite classes

Honestly, it’s hard to pick just one. I enjoyed so many of my classes, and even when I didn’t love the topic of a class, I at least enjoyed the professor. I have to pick two (I’m sorry!). First is Professor Bickers’ Constitutional Law courses. He could be teaching anything and I would be absolutely enthralled. He gives the law context and inspires me to be the best attorney possible once I get out into the legal world. He also has hilarious and thoughtful references and pre-class song choices, and it’s absolutely clear he wholeheartedly cares about his students’ education. Second is Professor Honabach’s 1L Torts class. Obviously, it was a time-consuming and stressful course, but the discussions in class really made me think (and usually made me laugh). When my classmates and I sit around talking about classes and reminiscing, this one comes up often.

My favorite memory

Again, there are a lot! But if I have to pick just one, my favorite memory is probably being chosen to speak at the 2019 Law Review Symposium on International Human Rights. I shared the stage with incredible attorneys (including my own hero: Professor Bickers – see above) and had my first experience presenting published work that I’m passionate about. Law school is chaotic and stressful, but getting the opportunity to tell others about the work I had been doing, in hopes of making a teeny, tiny difference, made all the hardships worth it.

What I am looking forward to

So. Many. Things. I’m looking forward to getting incredible corporate and environmental law experience at Thompson Hine. I’m looking forward to being a resource for my community and participating in local bar associations. I’m looking forward to no longer having to say, “Well, I’m not an actual attorney yet.” And I’m looking forward to helping out our most marginalized and adversity-stricken neighbors through pro bono work. 


 
Rebecca McDonough

REBECCA McDONOUGH

My favorite class

Although it’s difficult to choose one favorite course, I really enjoyed Business Organizations.

My favorite memory

It’s equally difficult to choose a favorite memory. One that stands out the most is my 1L oral argument when my friend and I unknowingly signed up to argue against each other. As intimidating and nerve wracking as that experience was, going through it and being successful together made it a little easier.

What I am looking forward to

When I become an attorney, I look forward to helping my clients accomplish their goals. Whether buying a first home or starting a business, I cannot wait to assist my clients as they begin new and exciting chapters of their lives. 


 
Adam Millay

ADAM MILLAY

Scott Shofner

SCOTT SHOFNER

My favorite classes

I actually had several favorite classes, so it is hard to pick just one. But I think I would have to pick Taxation of Business Entities, and Estate Planning.

My favorite memory

My family and I visited Chase a couple of times, before and after being accepted. Those were quite memorable trips for me. But also, the first week of law school, in Professor Kinsley’s Legal Analysis and Problem Solving class. That is where I met most of the people that I would spend my next few years getting to know

What I am looking forward to

There are several areas of law in which I would love to practice: business taxation and estate/business succession planning, and intellectual property. But whatever area I end up practicing, I am looking forward to helping clients navigate the increasing complexities inherent in the law.


 
Eric Shumate

ERIC SHUMATE

My favorite class

Professor Bickers’ Constitutional Law class.  He kept it engaging and entertaining, despite the challenging material. One of my life goals is now to obtain a plague mask for Halloween! (Among the costumes Professor Bickers wears when he teaches at Halloween is a reproduction of a menacing bird-like mask some European doctors wore during the bubonic plague years of the 14th and 15th centuries.)

My favorite memory

Walking in to Legal Analysis and Problem Solving for the first time, seeing someone I met at a previous function, and realizing that I wasn’t alone on this journey.

Continue practicing transactional law in a corporate environment while seeking opportunities to branch out, either as part of a small practice or on my own.

Rebecca Nicole “Nikki” Spears

REBECCA NICOLE “NIKKI” SPEARS

My favorite classes

Interviewing, Counseling and Negotiation, with Professor Rothstein; any class with Professor Halbrook; any class with Professor Harrison. I love Professor Boltz, but I had her for Uniform Commercial Code, when it was that monster four-credit-hour course, and I can definitely say that was not a favorite! I also love Professor Kreder, and appreciate her for allowing me the opportunities to work with her on research projects.

My favorite memory

When I met Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Michelle Keller. As president of the Legal Association of Women, I had the pleasure of hosting her for an alumni networking event at an NKU women’s basketball game and for the annual Panel of Power during my 2L year, but my best memory came when I met her the first time. During 1L year I was the social chair for LAW and helped plan that year’s Panel of Power. But due to the panel clashing with several night classes there was a low turnout. However, this low turnout allowed those of us who did attend the amazing opportunity of real one-on-one time with Justice Keller. Even before I met her she was a personal hero of mine. Like me, she attendedChase as an older student and as a mother,  neither of which is easy. I have long admired her for the career path she chose and her grace during her political campaigns for the bench. So that night, I was able to sit with someone I truly admired, who gave me honest, straightforward advice about the career I’m chasing. That night allowed me to build a connection that has only strengthened during my time at Chase.   

What I am looking forward to

When I started in the summer of 2017, my career path was simple: transactional law. My law school plan was simple: take classes and don’t stop till graduation. So I have taken classes even throughout the summers. This plan unintentionally started me down a different path. It was during the summer between 1L and 2L, when I took Interviewing, Counseling and Negotiation, with Professor Rothstein. I absolutely adore that woman. She was kind, funny, provided evening snacks, and she made me want to be in it for more than just a paycheck. Her class was the first practical skills class I took, and it shaped my classes thereafter. I changed my fall schedule, took classes geared toward teaching me how to interact with clients and provide the services needed within the juvenile criminal justice system, and I never looked back. I spent the next summer in a county prosecutor’s office and the last year working in the Children’s Law Center through the Children’s Law Center Clinic, all because I wanted a better understanding of how to really listen and represent the interests of my future clients.

After graduation I plan to work for the Department of Public Advocacy in juvenile defense work, with my ultimate career goal as a juvenile advocate in the criminal justice system, pushing for policy change. And, believe it or not, it all started in Interviewing, Counseling and Negotiation.


 
Madelyn Stampley

MADELYN STAMPLEY

My favorite class

I loved all the classes that were taught by Professor Katkin. He made everything easy to understand and was always super enthusiastic about the content.

My favorite memory

My favorite memory is finding a group of friends my 1L year I could study with on the weekdays but also have fun with at the Banks (in downtown Cincinnati) on the weekends. I also really enjoyed the Barristers Ball because it gave me an excuse to dress up and see everyone from school outside of the law school setting.

What I am looking forward to

Although I’m unsure of the type of law in which I want to specialize, I’m hopeful that I will be able to find a fun and exciting way to use my degree when I move back to Nashville.

Mitchell Zegafuse

MITCHELL ZEGAFUSE

My favorite class

That’s a tough call. I really did enjoy many of my classes, so I guess I would say I liked Constitutional Law, with Professor John Bickers. Both sections were difficult because we covered so much material, but Professor Bickers always gave great lectures that were entertaining and insightful. 

My favorite memory

One of my favorite memories was on the very first day when I was leaving Lexington after work and beginning what would be the first of oh so many long drives back and forth to classes in the evening. I remember thinking, “How am I going to do this?” I was at a stop light close to where I would get on the interstate and I saw a man with no lower body, just his torso in a wheelchair using his hands to push himself up a hill on the sidewalk. I thought to myself that if that man could get up every day and face his challenges, I could surely make it through law school if I only put forth the effort. So, that is not a memory of school, but it did set my mindset for the remaining journey. A fun memory was when our 2016 entering class got together for our two-week law school boot camp with Professor McFarland. The class was called Legal Analysis and Problem Solving. At the end of the two weeks, students were given the opportunity to attempt to name all of our new classmates. Three of us took on the challenge and I believe all three of us successfully named the people in our entering class. I treasure the relationships that developed with these people as we found our way through our journey together.

What I am looking forward to

I have been working in the legal field for over 18 years and am now a licensed attorney. I am proud to be a member of this profession and look forward to working with attorneys that I have admired and come to know well over so many years. 

(Mitachell graduated in December 2019.)
