Jennifer Ann Gillespie, Class of '11
Working as a Student Attorney for the Criminal Defense Clinic was bar none the most rewarding experience of my law school career. My work on real world problems for actual clients instilled in me a love of the law I would otherwise have left law school without. There is simply no way to compare a four-hour timed exam to an opportunity to vigorously advocate on a client’s behalf in the courtroom. In the classroom, Bill Allison and the Clinic supervisors were more encouraging, involved, and interested in my progress than any professor I have had.
