BAY AREA LEGAL AID
December 18, 2011

I am a deferred Big Law associate who volunteered in the Youth Justice unit of Oakland's Bay Area Legal Aid. I had a great experience there. I worked with extremely intelligent and compassionate attorneys and staff, and I was given the opportunity to represent my own clients, and, with guidance from the staff attorneys, make decisions about how to best represent their needs. I had the opportunity to attend collaborative court and IEP meetings, which really helped my negotiation and representation skills. For law students or new attorneys looking for a wonderful legal organization to volunteer for and great legal experience, I would definitely recommend Bay Area Legal Aid!
