Junqin Li JD’15

Hometown: Dallas, Texas

“I looked at several schools and could have stayed at the UT Austin for law school, but I was impressed by Maurer’s personal touch. They assigned a law student from Dallas to help recruit me and answer my questions, and I got a handwritten note from Dean Motley. The whole recruiting experience was personable and warm.”
