HLS Peer Advisors

HLS Peer Advisors

HLS Peer Advisors was founded in 2019 to wrestle with a specific question: how does learning how to thrive as a human being prepare us to study and practice the law? Our working answer: being deliberate and intentional in our lives, practicing life, allows each of us to study and practice the law to our highest academic and professional potential, while living meaningfully and with purpose.
