Alumni Spotlight - Brandon Helms ('07)

Q. What were some of your notable experiences at the College of Law (classes, professors, student organizations, etc.)? 

While I was not officially a student in the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology, I did have strong relationships with Professors Bobbi Kwall and Barbara Bressler. They were instrumental in helping me obtain a paid internship with Judge Amy J. St. Eve the summer after my first year. The opportunity with Judge St. Eve was pivotal in helping me build my resume, legal skills and connections.

I also enjoyed my time on the DePaul Law Review editorial board. It was a big commitment, but I appreciated working with dedicated and extremely smart colleagues who were serious about putting out the best product possible. We were proud of the Law Review volume that we produced. 

Lastly, I had fantastic classmates and made some great friends. I’m still in contact with many of them today, and I enjoy reading about their successes in alumni news or on social media.
