Student Valerie Mahoney (1L) commented on how much she enjoyed participating in the Warming Center Clinic:  "It was nice to speak with guests then shadow the attorney as the guests presented their issues and the attorney discussed options.  Following each consultation, I was able to speak with the attorney to gain a better understanding of the issues.  I think this is a great opportunity to see how the legal community impacts the lives of others, and this also gives students a chance to look at areas of the law they may not have previously considered.  I look forward to the next clinic."
