As Mr. Rice was entering his third year of law school at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, hurricane Katrina was bearing down on the gulf coast. Once the storm had passed, residents were unable to return and the Law School decided to cancel the fall semester of the year. Needing to complete his studies, Mr. Rice, along with all other students in New Orleans, were forced to find another Law School to complete their studies. With ties to Maryland, Mr. Rice contacted The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. They immediately welcomed him with open arms and he was able to continue his studies.
