Graduating Student Spotlight: Ginger Pinkerton

Ginger Pinkerton

With commencement just around the corner on Saturday, May 14, CWRU School of Law is featuring a few of our outstanding graduating students. 

What has been your favorite course at CWRU Law?

Discrimination in Employment, taught by Professor Sharona Hoffman. We got through a lot of really important subject matter, and Professor Hoffman kept the course updated with very recent developments in employment discrimination case law. I am grateful that as a result of this course I feel better prepared and knowledgeable about my rights as I enter the workforce.

What are your post-graduation plans?

Jury's still out on where I'm taking the bar, but I'm psyched to move to Milwaukee for a two-year clerkship at the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin. I am originally from Wisconsin and am looking forward to being back in the same state as all of my siblings.

What advice would you give to incoming first-year law students?

Do your best and forget the rest. You can only do what you can reasonably do, and that's enough. Everything will work out in the end.
