Admissions Podcast Series – Real Cases

To see all podcast episodes, visit our Podcast Series page.

In this episode, we’re joined by Lamine Gueye and Sara Fultz, two rising 3L students at Stetson who originally hail
from New York and Virginia. They share their thoughts about the Tampa Bay area, what drew them to Stetson,
and what it’s like going to law school after spending some years working after college.

Over one out of four adults in the U.S. has some type of disability. In this episode we’re joined by Kathryn Pelham,
Stetson Law’s Associate Director of Accessibility Resources & ADA Coordinator, to discuss how Stetson and other law schools are
accommodating a growing number of students with conditions that impact their access to education. She discusses her philosophy behind equitable
accommodations in law school curricula, the challenges of reaching for universal accessibility, and the importance of advocating for yourself.

The Supreme Court’s new ruling in Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard reverses an over 40-year-old precedent for how
university admissions committees can cultivate racial diversity in their incoming classes. In this episode we’re joined by Professor Peter Lake,
an internationally recognized expert on higher education law and policy. He discusses the history of race-conscious college admissions,
the consequences of judicial mistrust for higher ed administration, and why he thinks the court’s latest ruling is
“litigation bait” for many more lawsuits to come.

In this episode, Stetson Law Professor Louis Virelli III, a leading expert on the constitutional questions underlying Supreme Court recusal,
discusses the importance of legal career development — as a student and after. After making a hard pivot from engineering
to the law, Virelli knew he wanted to teach and followed a career path to take him there.

In this episode, Stetson Law Professor Christine Cerniglia and recent grad Denia Angelino discuss judicial externships, the legal profession’s
standards for ethical behavior outside the courtroom, and how the passions Denia pursued in her independent study led her to
her current career working in employment discrimination law.
