“I liked how you are able to engage with litigants and understand court documents. You are helping low income people who really need guidance. I learned about evictions, landlords, divorce, child custody, child support, parentage, etc... It was a great experience and I got to work with other college students in the Bay Area. ”

“Every day was enjoyable because you knew what to expect generally (types of cases) but never knew what to expect with people’s personalities, backstory, and/or goals. Even with some challenges, I loved being at the courthouse.”
