My work [in the Housing Unit at the Legal Aid Society] with clients in New York’s current housing crisis has brought me face to face with the legal systems that disproportionately disadvantage people with the fewest resources. While the legal system is incredibly daunting and discouraging, the chance to give clients access to justice has inspired me and is a welcome reminder of why I wanted to go to law school.
