How has being a Political Science graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?

A political science education provides an analytical framework for assessing issues which is similar to that required of a lawyer in that you attempt to look at an issue from all sides and viewpoints. As a lawyer, while you are advocating for your client's position, you must consider all sides of an argument in order to consider whether your client's position is strong and what the other sides arguments will be.
