What was your most memorable law school moment?
Competing in the Final Round of the Myerowitz Competition and winning my 2L year, and then returning as a 3L to help run this year’s Myerowitz Competition, which had to be held remotely because of coronavirus. I was so proud that we were able to hold the competition this year.

Finish this sentence: I could not have gotten through law school without…
my tuxedo cat Oliver.

Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
My parents, Lisa and David Spinosa. I also look up to my younger brothers, Michael and David Spinosa, for their determination and positive energy. I think it is so cool that my brother David is a 1L here at Maryland Carey Law. I’ve always looked to my family for inspiration.

What did you learn about yourself in law school?
I learned how hard I could work, and what I could accomplish if I put my mind to it and dedicated all of myself to it. I also pulled the first all nighters in my life studying. I never needed to stay up all night doing work until law school! I also learned that I really like analyzing all sides of an issue.

What was your favorite class and why?
My favorite class was Civil Procedure. Crazy as it is, I find procedure fascinating!

Write a message.
Thank you to my professors for sharing their knowledge and passion about the subjects they teach with us. It means the world to know the time and care that the professors have put into their courses both before and after the pandemic. They have always been there for us, and I would not be here without the wonderful professors we have at Maryland Carey Law. Thank you to my classmates–I learned so much from you. I have never in my life been surrounded by a more brilliant group of people than I have here at Maryland Carey Law. The students here really are special. Thank you to the Law Review Board and Staff for putting up with my occasional silliness and for the interesting conversations! tThank you to my family, and a special thank you to my partner of four years, Peter Radics, for his endless support, patience, and unique insights on life. Thank you for spending many weekends listening to me talk about the cases I was reading for class and for the calm presence that you are.
