SEC Commissioner Caroline Crenshaw '09

After seven years with the Securities and Exchange Commission in a staff capacity, Caroline Crenshaw ’09 took on a leadership post few people inside or outside of the law ever achieve when she became one of the SEC's five commissioners. Although she never imagined landing in such a role in Law School, she credits the rigorous academic experience she had at Minnesota Law with creating professional opportunities for her in the years that followed. Read our Q&A with Crenshaw.

"My Minnesota Law experience is replete with fond memories—both joys and challenges. The dedication of the faculty and the collegiality of my classmates stand out. My professors cared deeply about their students and were passionate educators," Crenshaw says.

At Minnesota Law, we are profoundly committed to producing the next generation of lawyer-leaders. Students get the opportunity to connect with and ultimately join our powerful network of alumni, including prominent attorneys, state and federal judges, high-level government officials, entrepreneurs, and CEOs of major corporations.
