I so enjoyed the Housing Clinic, and the biggest lesson I learned was that of client advocacy. It wasn’t that I had some specialized knowledge about housing law; I simply gave my client five minutes that no one else would give them.  It just took five minutes to speak to clients and hear their story […]

I can confidently say, without a doubt in my mind, that the Criminal Defense Clinic was the single best thing I did at Texas Law.  The supervisors are top-notch and consistently find a way to reward the students with experience, supplemented by valuable anecdotes from both other students and the supervisors themselves.  I would recommend […]
