Abby Bourgeois: Coordinator of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) at the University of Florida Levin College of Law
by Heather Jung
According to Bourgeois, her favorite class thus far has been the two-part Bankruptcy course, which gave her the chance to meet with Bankruptcy Judges and Practitioners throughout Florida.
"The course focused on real world application and each session required the class to read a set of facts and discuss the issues/resolution with the visiting lecturer. Learning from such experienced and respected judges and practitioners was an irreplaceable experience," Bourgeois said.
"Law school provides an inside view of what happens behind the scenes, beyond what is available in newspaper articles or simple observation," she said.
According to Bourgeois, her favorite part of law school has been the relationships she has formed with her peers. She considers her peers to be the ones who have influenced her the most during her time at law school.
"The people I met in law school have such diverse interests and backgrounds. Learning from them has been the most rewarding and influential part of law school," Bourgeois said.
