Erhan Bedestani – Law Student Leading By Example

“I am grateful for the opportunity CLADC provided me when it eagerly brought me into their organization. Moreover, CLADC provides additional education opportunities in support of its legal clinics to include additional probate training, records sealing, and client interviewing. These are invaluable. Our ultimate goal is not to be a great law student, our goal is to be a great lawyer and advocate for the clients we serve. To do this means not only working hard in our classes but also infusing real-world experiences into our academic training. Pro bono legal work is this real-world training under the skillful leadership and mentorship of an attorney. It has enriched my law school experience exponentially.”
