Christine G. Aziz began her studies at Touro Law two years ago. In just a few months she will be a member of the first graduating class from Touro Law’s Accelerated Honors Program, where candidates complete law school in just two years, and begin her job as a Judicial Clerk in Bergen County New Jersey.
She decided to attend law school to challenge herself. She knew that obtaining a law degree would offer her endless opportunities while opening many doors for her as a young woman.
Christine stated, “Having experienced the environment at other law schools, Touro felt like home to me. I feel fortunate to have this opportunity and to be graduating with a J.D. in May having already secured employment.”
Throughout her time at Touro, Christine learned that she has a true passion for the law, particularly in the area of family law. In representing her own client on record in the Family Law clinic, it was confirmed for Christine what she felt all along, that a career in law is the right path for her.
Christine balances her rigorous course of study with extra-curricular activities and projects, including being a member of the Moot Court Honors Board, Student Bar Association and Women’s Bar Association.
As for advice for prospective students, she offers, “Your entire world will change. The way you think, speak, and act will be altered as you learn an entirely new language that is the law. You will apply this new way of thinking to all walks of life. Not everyone in your life will stick around –but there will also be those that fiercely support your dreams. For me, this was my mother. I would not be graduating this spring if it was not for her constant positive force of energy in my life. Find your people and be good to them. You cannot ever take those people for granted—and that is the best advice I can offer.”
