Q: What is your favorite study space?

Innovation Park, home to the IP and Entrepreneurship Clinic. There are really nice chairs for studying, and a coffee/hot chocolate machine.

Q: What advice would you give to perspective students? 

If you are interested in patent law you can take the patent bar early–before you enter law school or during your 1L summer. You'll have a much easier time after you graduate, and it feels great to have a USPTO registration number on your resume.
