NLURC was lucky to have the help of our four legal externs this summer, but now they’re moving on to even greater things. Laura, Marie, Taj, and Dana all worked hard at making our newly opened Legal Clinic a huge success, and they have our deepest gratitude.

Although we are sad to see you go, we know you’ll continue finding new ways to make the world a better place to live. Good luck and all the best in your future endeavors!
