Graduate Profiles

In 1993, Cheryl A. Sharp ’93 followed through on her longstanding plan to do advocacy work when she signed on as a law clerk with the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO).

When Cindy Johnson ’11 began her studies in the evening division at UConn Law in 2007, she had 20-plus years of experience in software development on her résumé and a self-described “dream” of being a public interest lawyer.

In 2001, Shauhin Talesh '00, LL.M. '01 fulfilled a dream when he accepted an assistant professorship at the University of California, Irvine, School of Law. It was a dream, he says, that began to take shape during his very first class at UConn Law.

Marcia M. Boumil '83 dedicates her very busy professional life to important issues at the intersection of health and law. Her interest in the law took shape while she was working on her M.P.H. at Tufts University School of Medicine in 1979.

When Judge Sheridan Moore ’78 was an undergraduate majoring in education at the University of Bridgeport, she had a close friend interested in going to law school who challenged Moore to do the same.

At the age of fifteen, Pedro E. Segarra '85 left his mother and five siblings and moved - by himself - to Hartford to escape the gang violence that took the lives of two of his good friends in the Bronx neighborhood his family had settled in after leaving Puerto Rico in 1966.
