The Housing Clinic provided me one of the rare opportunities in law school to get exposure to the full scope of activities that legal aid attorneys work on. As a student attorney in the clinic, I had the opportunity to work on housing cases with real clients that covered a broad range of issues including eviction defense, discrimination lawsuits, and administrative complaints. This work entailed engaging with a range of substantive law including federal housing and civil rights law, consumer protection law, state property and contract law, and administrative law. The skills I developed were similarly broad, including litigation-focused writing, client communication, negotiation, dispute resolution, and oral advocacy. In all, I found the housing clinic to be a thoroughly rewarding experience with Fred and Nelson serving as wonderful teachers, supervisors, and mentors.
