You have to be hungry
Externship, law review, rigorous courses—Scott Reid ’02 took full advantage of everything Widener Law had to offer. But the thing for which the alumnus is most thankful—his ambition. 
“Right out of the gate I was just as qualified as any other attorney,” Reid says. “But I was hungrier than the rest. I wanted to prove myself and show how great Widener Law really is. I still do.”

For Reid, Widener’s excellence stemmed from the faculty. Learning from esteemed professors in the ideal location of America’s corporate capital, he couldn’t have asked for a better legal education.

“Studying business law on Widener’s Delaware Campus gave me access to some of the best minds in the business,” Reid says. “Their success rubs off on you and you just want to follow their lead.”

Reid has definitely followed that lead, becoming a leader in his own right. At Cozen O’Connor in Philadelphia, he plays the role of both attorney and businessman—involved with everything from litigation to business development. In fact, Reid was recently named a “Rising Star” by a special publication of the Legal Intelligencer, a distinction garnered by only the top 2.5 percent of Pennsylvania lawyers each year.
