Sydney Cogswell '21, Albany Law School

Political Science & Criminology

Before her first day in law school, Sydney already had her day in court. Her mentor, Andrew Miller, associate professor of political science, pointed her in the direction of an internship opportunity with Luzerne County Judge Lesa Gelb. This complete immersion in the legal system built knowledge and confidence.

Kyle Kreider, professor of political science and pre-law advisor, helped Sydney set a precedent for law school success. “I know Wilkes was a good value for my education as I sit in my current law school classes feeling significantly ahead of my classmates.”

The law classes I took with Dr. Kreider seriously made me feel so prepared for my law school classes.
