Tully Minoski, Class of '10
The study of law and the practice of law are very different, and I think that the Juvenile Justice Clinic was one of my most valuable experiences in law school specifically because it facilitates the transition from the study to the practice of law. At the start of the Clinic, it was unclear what to do, where to do it, and how to do it most effectively. However, with the help and guidance of the faculty, I finished the semester working up cases from open to close in comfort and with confidence. Aside from that, the Juvenile Justice Clinic was particularly intellectually engaging because it really challenged some of my fundamental assumptions and beliefs about how juvenile justice should–and actually does–function.
