My time as a student-attorney at the Turner Clinic was an invaluable part of my legal education at Emory. Not only did it provide an opportunity to get more involved in my local community and gain hands-on experience in my chosen practice area, but it also set me up for success in my job search and helped me land my dream job with the Sierra Club's Environmental Law Program.
