Jolene Blackbourn ignored moot court, law review, and on-campus interviews; everything she could to avoid litigation. After a professor explained that Jolene had a knack for litigation work, Jolene Blackbourn found that she enjoyed the research and preparation needed for trial. Eventually being known as the “Trial Queen,” Jolene excelled when she worked in-house on corporate defense matters. Now, Jolene Blackbourn runs The Legal Learning Center, where she helps students graduate in less time and with less debt.
