Once a volunteer attorney agrees to take a case, they may draft a deed, litigate in landlord tenant court, advice a small business, or extend their knowledge to other potential legal issues that VIP clients face. While I am just working at VIP for the summer, I am constantly inspired by the vigor in which VIP volunteers advocate for their clients.
I look forward to the time when I will be on the receiving end of a phone call from VIP, asking me to represent a client. I highly recommend current law students that are interested in public interest apply for an internship at VIP because it will be time well spent!
