“Pursuing a liberal arts education at Emory allowed me and forced me to take a variety of classes. As a litigator I have used my liberal arts education to relate with people about a variety of subjects, and it impacts my professional success.
“The more knowledge I have about a variety of subjects, the more likely it is that I will relate with other people. My ability to reference philosophers brings respect from opposing counsel. And my understanding of religion from an Emory class impressed a client who felt he could now trust me.”
