 We were truly impressed with all the students from across the Big Country who we talked to whether they were interested in law, or just looking at what career options are available to them.
Criminal Defense and Post Conviction Attorney Sarah Durham was on hand to answer questions. Having formerly been a high school English teacher, Sarah was impressed with the number of students who are looking into a future legal career, whether as an attorney, paralegal, or legal assistant. The event at the Abilene Convention Center is sponsored annually by West Texas Workforce Solutions.
