Rutgers Spring Break Law Clerks Enjoy Their Time with TRLA

TRLA Austin's 2009 Spring Break Law Clerks from Rutgers University

Michael is a current law school student at Rutgers University.  As part of his spring break, he joined more than one dozen other Rutgers law school students in working with Texas RioGrande Legal Aid for one week.  Michael worked with TRLA attorney D’Ann Johnson in helping provide legal assistance to LifeWorks, a nonprofit organization that helps youth and families leave bad situations and rebuild their lives.  At the end of his week, he had a small note for D’Ann:


I am very thankful that I was able to take part in the street law outreach with Lifeworks. It was a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. I have enjoyed so many things about my experience here in Austin and the interaction with the young people at Lifeworks has definitely been a highlight. It is great to see legal knowledge being applied in such a practical and meaningful way.

Thanks again to everyone for helping to make it such a wonderful experience.

All the best,
