"The William Wayne Justice Center is what attracted me to Texas Law. I have felt so supported by this community since before even stepping foot on campus. I am grateful to the Justice Center for plugging me into the many public interest opportunities I have at Texas Law. I am excited to participate in pro bono, clinics, conferences, and more as I prepare for my public interest legal career."

Sally Vandenberg graduated from Claremont McKenna College with a BA in Economics. After college, she obtained her MEd and taught middle school math in Kansas City, MO, worked for Open Door Legal in San Francisco, and served as a court advocate for the Center for Alternative Sentencing and Employment Services in New York City. She is interested in criminal justice reform and public defense.

At Texas Law, Sally participates in the Justice Center student advisory board, and is a staff editor of the Texas Journal on Civil Liberties & Civil Rights, a 1L rep for the American Constitution Society, and a member of the Public Defense Group. She has also volunteered for several pro bono projects, including the Law for Black Lives Drug Conviction Relief Project, the Driver's License Recovery Project, and the Expunction Project. This summer she will work with New York County Defender Services.
