(In the Safe Harbor Clinic,) the instruction we received from our professor was so phenomenal, I really felt like I was a junior attorney working for a client who needed our services the most.
The practical experiences I gained from Brooklyn Law School were numerous... I worked almost every semester of law school in some sort of capacity.
