Student Spotlight: Rebecca Wylie, 3L

Wylie, Rebecca

Who better to advocate for people with disabilities than a lawyer with disabilities? That’s the reasoning of Rebecca Wylie, a third-year student planning to graduate with a law degree and health law certificate in May 2015. Wylie uses a wheelchair, writes with her mouth, and wants to “be as normal as possible.” She’s learned through personal experience that her calling is advocating for society’s disadvantaged. “I know what it’s like to not be able to afford health care,” she explains. “I understand how yes, you have private insurance, and yes, you have Medicaid, but you also have out-of-pocket expenses. Challenges like that affect lots of people, not just those with disabilities. I can bring a disability perspective to these issues.”
