Jim Zouras | The Law School Experience / Making Choices
Jim returns to talk about his unconventional journey through law school, and how he landed where he is in law today.

In addition, Jim has helped secure groundbreaking and precedent-setting court decisions in the areas of wage and hour law, consumer fraud and employee privacy.
Jim has been appointed lead or co-lead counsel on dozens of class actions throughout the United States. He has successfully tried over a dozen major jury trials and argued over 14 appeals as lead appellate counsel before federal and state appellate courts. Jim is also a member of the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States.
