Adam Rhodes-Rogan ’16

I chose Northeastern because I wanted to attend the best school for obtaining practical legal skills.

Adam Rhodes-Rogan ’16

Adam Rhodes-Rogan expected a rigorous first year of law school, but what took him by surprise was his classmates’ willingness to help each other through the process. “I was amazed at how friendly my classmates were, and how quickly we would all seek out each other’s help when it was needed. Being able to work collaboratively with others is important to the modern lawyer, and Northeastern prepares you for that.”

Now, as an associate at Goodwin, Adam is putting the skills he acquired, both in the classroom and on co-op, into practice. “Co-op was an excellent way to expand my network into the corporate law world,” says Adam. “It also allowed me the flexibility to obtain a breadth of legal experience while I was still in law school.”
