The following is Miguel’s story, and it is a story of redemption through the Union Rescue Mission (“URM”) on L.A.’s Skid Row. I share it with you because stories like Miguel’s travel through the Pepperdine Legal Aid Clinic that is housed at the URM on a regular basis. In the video, you will see our Clinic featured around the 1:00 mark.
Professor Brittany Stringfellow Otey directs the Legal Aid Clinic and does heroic work. The Legal Aid Clinic provides a fantastic opportunity for our upper-division students to interact with real clients, develop their lawyering skills, and make a positive difference in the world.
