“My most formative Law School experience was being on the founding Executive Board of SJU Defenders, a student-led group that allows students to explore careers in public defense and related fields that help people fight back against systemic oppression. As an alum, the greatest part has been watching how current students have made SJU Defenders their own and continue to explore and act on fighting the powers that be.”
