She later received her Juris Doctor from Elon University School of Law, where she first began litigating in moot court competitions, served as the Symposium Editor for the Elon Law Review, and worked as a Teaching Assistant for two first-year courses, Legal Writing and Civil Procedure. Samantha also spent a semester clerking for the Honorable James L. Gale in the North Carolina Business Court, where she worked on complex business cases including employment law matters.
