During your first year it’s really important to set boundaries and save time for your friends and family. So be sure to work hard, but also be able to do the things you want to do. 
 
[Alumni Texys Morris, Public Interest Law Council Co-Founder:]
Hi guys! Welcome to Georgia Law, and I just want to encourage to really get involved in your first year. Make the most of all the student activities, especially the public interest work here at UGA Law. And definitely make sure you try to get to know your faculty and staff because they will be there to support you every step of the way, and they will help you to get jobs which is always a good thing! So enjoy your experience, get involved and have fun. Survive 1L year, you’ll do great, and just know that we’re proud to have you as a Law Dawg. Go Dawgs!
