Law School Public Service Program Volunteers Say…
Legal Aid Society
“I really enjoyed the work. Hamra gave me a great amount of independence in choosing what to work on, so I got a wide range of experience.”
“The staff at HOMELine appreciates volunteers and allows them to observe client counseling in addition to responding to the landlord/tenant hotline. The atmosphere is great and I have benefited greatly from the experience.”
Pro Se Dissolution Clinic in Shakopee
“I thought this experience was a really beneficial one in two ways. First, I (a law student) was able to do some actual work and not just research, which law students typically are forced to do. Second, I felt I was actually helping someone. Although a sad choice in life, choosing to get a divorce, I saw it as helping them move on.”
Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women
“MCBW is a great experience; I learned about domestic violence laws and how it affects young women specifically.”
Pre-Orientation Service Trip
“It was an informative experience. I didn’t realize the problems facing tenants or manufactured home parks.”
