Lia Davis, Class of '11
Beyond the great work I got to do in the Clinic, the opportunity to work with Fred Fuchs was truly a life-changing experience. Fred is an incredible role model for aspiring attorneys. Not only is he among the most knowledgeable housing attorneys in the country, he is a meticulous and deeply ethical attorney. Fred does not put up with sloppy lawyering. He had high expectations of clinic students and these expectations instilled in me a conviction to always produce excellent work. He encourages students to work independently, but provides careful and helpful feedback. During my current clerkship, I have often asked myself, “What would Fred Fuchs do?” It’s a question more attorneys should probably ask themselves. Law students have a tremendous opportunity to get to work with Fred Fuchs and I encourage all law students to take it.
