"I was so excited to learn that there was an organization at Cleveland-Marshall that was founded to support parenting students.  It is truly amazing when you can network with others who understand your personal struggles. I always tell others that it takes a strong individual to attend law school, but it takes a superhero to attend law school while being held responsible for other human beings.” - Gianna Colucci

“No one should be denied the opportunity to further their education and create a better life for their children because of being a parent. Parents in law school often face undeniable financial struggles, as the set law school student loan budget is not meant to accommodate the support of an entire family or child care expenses. Every day, I am inspired and in awe of the way that other parenting students in the law school manage so many responsibilities with grace and are still some of the smartest, most prepared people in the classroom and in the workplace.” - Jillian Gosser
