Clinic's work for military families noted by CLEA
The Civil Justice Clinic’s work on behalf of military members and their families was noted in the May newsletter of the Clinical Legal Education Association.
“Since arriving at the Civil Justice Clinic at Arizona State (University) in the fall, Marcy Karin, Associate Clinical Professor and Director of the Work-Life Policy Unit, and her students have been taking a number of matters for active-duty military members and their families as well as veterans,” the newsletter reported.
The clinic’s interest was precipitated by the fact that numerous clinic students, staff and their children have military ties, and that several law students planned to join the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps after graduation. Students began taking cases referred by the American Bar Association Military Pro Bono Project and from local JAG offices.
The newsletter, which is received by more than 750 clinical professors around the country, includes a photo of former clinic students and 2010 graduates Meghan McCauley, a member of the Air Force ROTC, and Patrick Camuñez, an Army captain in the National Guard.
