Student Spotlight


Brian Paterson and Dr. Deravi

Brian Paterson, senior in Economics, is congratulated by Dr. Keivan Deravi, Dean of the College of Sciences, on his award of a full scholarship and stipend to attend the University of Alabama School of Law. 

Brian states: 
“The Economics department at AUM is fantastic.  The professors really care about the students and do everything they can to ensure that you can be successful in whatever career path you choose.  The study of economics helped me prepare for the LSAT in many ways and I would encourage students interested in law school to consider economics as a major.”
