"I smiled every single time I went to court and saw an LSIC law student in there, battling and battling and battling. The passion that they bring to our courts is priceless, absolutely priceless."  --- Michele Roberts, reflecting on her years as a public defender at DC Superior Court.  Every student in law school should go for an experience like Law Students in Court.   ---  Marc H. Morial, commenting on his experience as a student-attorney representing clients in Southeast DC.
