Meet 3L Angelique Ajala, a students who works directly with and in the community to provide quality legal representation to underserved individuals through our Legal Clinic Leaders blog series. We're excited to spotlight these all-star advocates and showcase the many different fields of law you can explore through our legal clinics and the wide range of opportunities available at Southwestern to gain practical lawyering skills. We hope their experiences will inspire YOU to join a legal clinic.
Why did you decide to participate in a clinic?
I decided to participate in a clinic because I wanted a unique experience that would allow me to intertwine my love of the law with my newfound love of teaching. The Street Law Clinic allowed me an opportunity to explore both avenues.
What words of advice would you have for future clinic students?
My best words of advice are to be flexible, to be knowledgeable, and to be accessible.
