Cover // 50 years of Legal Aid

“Of all my law school classes, there is no doubt that the Legal Aid Clinic is the class from which I received the most benefit,” said Marty Brown, L'86. “I interacted with many clients, made my only jail visit (to interview a client), had several court appearances, prepared many pleadings and did a ton of legal research – all of which were very beneficial to me in my post-Lawrence career.”

Brown’s story illustrates the quintessential Legal Aid Clinic experience: routine legal matters that make a monumental difference in the lives of clients who could not otherwise afford representation while providing invaluable practical experience to future lawyers.

Since 1967, more than 1,300 students have cut their teeth in the Clinic under the supervision of seasoned attorneys and faculty, working to secure “justice for and to protect the rights of the needy.”

Plus Class Notes and the Volunteer Honor Roll.
