DISASTER RELIEF CLINIC The Disaster Relief Clinic assists clients with all legal issues that have arisen as a result of Superstorm Sandy and its aftermath. Students represent clients in real estate and land use matters public benefits and public utilities issues FEMA claims and legal problems related to employment contractorconsumer and general insurance law. Given the diversity of legal matters students handle cases in both federal and state courts. They engage in both transactional law activities including preparing and processing insurance claims and in the early stages of litigation negotiating with adversaries and participating in court-monitored mediation. Working with the Disaster Relief Clinic was by far the most beneficial experience I had throughout my law school career. I participated in multiple mediations worked with flood victims of Superstorm Sandy and even got the chance to travel to Washington D.C. to attend the first ever Sandy Task Force meeting. The Disaster Relief Clinic gave me a platform to develop the skills and confidence necessary for a future practitioner. Whitney Steiner 2015
