LA Native Timsi Pathek shares her C|M|LAW story:
Attorney, U.S. Department of Education
Office for Civil Rights
BA, University of California at Irvine
Los Angeles native Timsi Pathek had never stepped foot in Cleveland before arriving for law school, and never expected to find the place she’d call home. “Blown away” by the friendliness of Cleveland residents and the fact that at C|M|LAW – from the dean, to faculty, to other students’ parents (who gave the unprepared Californian a box of cold weather gear for her first Ohio winter) – everyone cared how she was doing both personally and academically. The close-knit legal community offered the same support. “I remember people helping me for no reason. If you meet at networking events, the willingness of other attorneys to say ‘I want to see you succeed, what can I do?’ is amazing. ” When her summer internships led to full time work, Timsi decided to stay in the city that had welcomed her. “They’ve done a great job revitalizing the downtown area – it’s a fun place for young professionals and the cost of living in Cleveland is so affordable.”
