"Law school is intimidating and the first year can be confusing for someone interested in public interest law. The Justice Center provides a space for students interested in public interest to meet each other, attend events, and discuss issues we care about. Even though I am currently a remote student living outside Texas due to the pandemic, I feel that the Justice Center has helped me feel more at home at Texas Law. I am so grateful for this added support during this difficult time."
