LL.M.’15 and current S.J.D. candidate, Harvard Law School

My first contact with HLS was Professor Alford himself when I was trying to decide among the many options I had when choosing a law school for an LL.M. degree. He was kind enough to meet me in person and discuss whatever questions I had about the HLS and more. Even after entering the program, the thoughtfulness and generosity towards his students never failed to impress me. This does not mean that he was compromising as a scholar and a teacher. He was always pushing his students to achieve higher, to be brave and keep asking questions. I will always fondly remember my meetings with him, when he could be funny, challenging, and kind all at the same time. Thank you, Professor Alford, for everything.
