A Law School Love Story

by Rhianna Shabsin

We’ve posted before about the matchmaking powers of law school, and now we’re happy to present our latest story – just in time for Valentine’s Day! Below, Lauren Fibel, one of our Student Admission Ambassadors, tells how she and her fiancé, Matt, found love in law school.

Lauren and Matt

“Matt and I met five days into law school at the student activities fair. He was working the Jewish Law Students booth and I was signing up for clubs. As I walked up to his booth, Matt began to turn on the charm. We chatted for about thirty minutes before I had to leave. He claims that after I left, he told his buddy that he had just met the woman he was going to marry.

Our first date was to Blue Talon, a delicious restaurant in Colonial Williamsburg. It only took one date for us to become inseparable, and on June 8th, 2011, Matt proposed! We plan on tying the knot on September 1st, 2013, after we take the bar exam. Who knew that coming to W&M law would give us an amazing education and enable us to find each other? It can be described as nothing less than fate!”
