Former Student/Alumni | Staff Attorney in the Austin office of Texas RioGrande Legal Aid

The Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic provided an unmatched opportunity to learn how to be a lawyer. The clinic professors are well-respected leaders and experts in housing, community development, and transactional law. From the close interaction with clients to the breadth of substantive legal matters, the clinic allowed me to experience real lawyering while also effecting change in my local community. I was able to build off my work in the clinic and it has helped launch my career as a community lawyer in Austin.
