Most rewarding aspects of your engagement with the UC Hastings community
Working with students in our clinics, seeing them grow in confidence, zeal and effectiveness, often “out-lawyering” more experienced counsel.
Particularly meaningful honor or award
I will always cherish the “Social Justice MVP” bobblehead of me, in an Oakland A’s uniform, that a cohort of Social Justice concentrators gave me.
Most important way the Hastings community enriches your life
By surrounding me with talented and committed clinical colleagues who are caring teachers, great lawyers and role models, and dear friends. Letting me teach—and learn from—engaged and inspiring students. Allowing me to serve clients and community groups I believe in to create outcomes I feel good about.
