The S.J. Quinney College of Law’s Pro Bono Clinics were featured in the March 10, 2016 edition of the Deseret News. The Pro Bono Initiative allows law students practice valuable lawyering skills under the supervision of a practicing attorney, while helping underserved populations in the community.
JoLynn Spruance, the director of the university’s Pro Bono Initiative, said the free legal services clinic is a “win-win situation” for both clinic clients and the volunteer law students.
“Our goal is to provide our students with hands-on legal training while helping out the poor and the underserved in our community,” she said. “The students feel they are helping someone in need while honing their legal skills.”
