Student Perspective on the Business Law Boot Camp: Jeffrey Myers
Baylor Law's Business Law Boot Camp is a week-long program that provides Baylor Law students with a practical, deep dive into various areas of law a corporate or business transactional lawyer deals with regularly. Taught by a diverse team of accomplished transactional attorneys, the Boot Camp courses are delivered via both classroom lectures and collaborative exercises.
Jeffrey Myers attended Baylor Law's Business Law Boot Camp in 2022. Read his thoughts on the Boot Camp below.
Why did you apply for the Boot Camp? Did it meet your expectations?
I applied for the Boot Camp to expand my knowledge of business law beyond the classes I had taken in law school, and it definitely helped me do that.
What are your thoughts on what you learned during the Boot Camp?
It's been great! I wish I had taken more business law classes while I had the chance.
Which classroom session(s) or topic(s) made a particularly strong impression on you, and why?
The succession planning discussion was incredible. Hearing all the real life stories of how the things we learn make a practical difference to clients really helps put everything into perspective, in the most meaningful way.
What part of the Boot Camp was most challenging for you?
Securities law... I knew next to nothing about securities law before that lecture.
What would you say to a fellow student who is interested in applying for the next Boot Camp?
If you are at all thinking about business law, or if you think you may want to represent businesses in the future, apply. It's truly a great experience.
What comes next for you? Do you think your attendance at the Boot Camp will impact your future plans?
I've technically graduated, so I'm studying for the Bar exam next. Hopefully something in business law will come afterward.
