Message from the Faculty
and Staff of CCLS

Congratulations, CCLS Class of 2013 Graduates! With the publication of this newsletter edition, we celebrate you and your achievements on behalf of our clinic clients.

Many challenges continue to face the legal profession, but we commend each of you for taking a major step to prepare for these challenges and to blaze your own legal career path by your choice to enroll in one of our clinics.

The world is ever-changing and the law will have to keep pace. With the education that you have received and the skills that you have begun to develop, you have a wonderful opportunity to move the effort forward. We hope that your clinic experience has laid a foundation for your development as a member of what continues to be an honorable profession.

We wish you all the best!
