The Catholic University of America

Columbus Community Legal Services 40th Anniversary Reunion

Description: Catholic University’s legal clinic was founded in 1970 to serve the needs of the powerless, the voiceless and the poor. During its four decades of existence, the clinic has helped thousands of area residents cope with their legal problems, while also teaching thousands of Columbus School of Law students how to be effective, competent and compassionate advocates for their clients. More than 60 clinic alumni returned on October 9, 2010 to help celebrate this year’s milestone anniversary. Eight of them, from class years spanning all four decades, sat before the camera to share recollections of their experiences as clinical law students.
