Elke Gordon Schardt, initially educated in Germany, began her post-secondary education at the University of California at Los Angeles where she studied linguistics, which involves grammar and language.
After graduating from UCLA with a B.A. in Linguistics she attended Southwestern University School of Law. During law school, she was clerking for an attorney and liked it. She already had a love for language and found that she thoroughly enjoyed the use of it in the courtroom— discovering that a lot of one’s success there depends on how well they write and articulate their position.
When you practice law, you should be level-headed and honest. You should never create unrealistic expectations for the client, and you should always stand by your word.
