MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Three students at the West Virginia University College of Law recently participated in a national conference for defense attorneys. 

Second-year law students Alley Jordan, Mattie Shuler and Shelby Turley traveled to Boston for the annual meeting of DRI, where they networked with attorneys while learning about legal defense practice through presentations and workshops.

DRI, founded in 1960, is an organization of defense attorneys and in-house counsel that aims to build connections, educate members and improve the justice system. 

"There were a lot of changes of views that people held about their career and it was really interesting to hear all of those different perspectives," Jordan said.
