“I made connections and built relationships…”

“My time working for the Children's Justice Clinic was my favorite course because I was able to directly advocate for juvenile clients. I made connections and built relationships with my clients. It was rewarding to see my hard work directly pay off through their cases. It was by far the most meaningful and important work I did while at Rutgers.”
