Peter Mosleh thought law school would be the ideal mental exercise: stimulating, challenging, and at times intimidating, but ultimately very useful in a wide variety of career settings. To his delight, at UC Davis School of Law, he found all his expectations confirmed.
"I came to law school because I thought it would be a challenging, interesting, and rewarding experience," said Mosleh. "I came to UC Davis because of the emphasis on social justice, and because of the friendly, relaxed, and supportive environment."
As with many students at UC Davis School of Law, Mosleh was pleasantly surprised to find life at King Hall to be substantially different from stereotypical expectation of law school as a harsh, intimidating, and highly competitive environment. Though the classes were demanding, the atmosphere was friendly and cooperative, said Mosleh, and there were plenty of groups and activities to help ease the stress. "I was involved in the King Hall Golf Club, which helped me to get my mind off school for a few hours a week," said Mosleh.
Mosleh is now working as an associate at Palmieri, Tyler, Wiener, Wilhelm & Waldron in Irvine, California, practicing in the firm's Estate Planning department.
