NACC Graduate Excels in Law School

Robin Love of Stevenson, a 2001 graduate of Northeast Alabama Community College, will graduate from The John Marshall Law School in May of this year. She is ranked 5th out of 84 students in her graduating class and is on the Mock Trial Team and the Law Review. At the writing of this article, she is busily preparing for a mock trial competition.

John Marshall is a private, accredited law school located in Atlanta, Georgia. The school has been open since 1933 and its program offers students expertise at the JD level.
Before attending John Marshall, Love attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. “Northeast prepared me well for transfer to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga,” said Love, who graduated there in 2003. “Not only were the classes at Northeast both challenging and interesting, but the professors’ enthusiasm for teaching and sincere care and willingness to help students touched and motivated me.”

Love advises future NACC transferees to take full advantage of the accessibility of the professors at NACC. “You don’t have this luxury at bigger schools and universities,” she said. “And it really is a luxury; not only do you get one-on-one assistance, but you can potentially form friendship and mentoring bonds that last long after graduation (like NACC Instructor Dr. Daphne Huntley and me!).”

“I have been impressed with Robin since the first time I met her and she announced, ‘I want to be a prosecutor,’” said Dr. Huntley of Love. “Here was this 18-year-old female high school grad proclaiming out loud that she wanted to do battle. So many lawyers shy away from the court room and criminal law. Robin had already made up her mind that she wanted to be in the courtroom. Of course, Robin brought that same intensity to my classroom, where she excelled in writing and literature, served as an officer in the English honorary and was inducted into the mathematics honorary. Her achievements in law school have been simply outstanding. I wish her nothing but the best.”

NACC graduate Robin LoveFuture plans for Love include one day having her own practice where she will concentrate on criminal defense, personal injury, and family law.
