Solving Complex Problems
“I’ve always wanted to help people. I think that lawyers are powerful members of society, and in this role, they have an opportunity to help people in aspects of their lives that others really can’t,” says Delaware student Peter Tsoflias of his desire to pursue a legal career.

Ann E. Conaway

Peter encourages future law students to take advantage of all the opportunities presented by law school, saying, “No matter where you go, these three years are going to fly by; use them as an opportunity to hone your legal skills before entering practice." He concludes, “That first year is difficult and it’s hard to adjust, but once you get over the learning curve, it really gives you an opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.”
