  1. im in 7th grade and have wanted to go to Harvard law school since 5th grade, shes truly an inspiration to me. i want to be a civil rights lawyer just like her and i want to work against sexism, racism, and for LGBT just like her. i felt that way prior to seeing this video but now shes making me want to achieve that more. thank you.

  2. I don’t know why people are going on about her eloquence. Most people at top law schools talk like this. They read a lot and they have a large vocabulary because that’s what law school is— you read a ton and have to analyze and synthesize cases sprinkled with complex language. If you’re not a good speaker then that likely means you’re not a big reader or a particularly competent one. And no, reading Harry Potter doesn’t count.

  3. 'people should be obligated' – doesn't make sense using 'should' and 'obligated' in the same sentence – even much more when it's articulated from a Harvard law student lol
