Passion for teaching and being a 'real world' lawyer

Victoria has a passion for teaching and seeing her students develop in their knowledge and practical application of the law. Learning the law can be a wondrous journey, but it can also be drudgery as one wades through the materials that one needs to get on top of the course requirements. Victoria believes both experiences can be nothing short of magical when one sees the fruit of this study at play in the real world of lawyering.

The law is a shield but it is also a sword. It is learning when to use these skills that makes a great lawyer.
