The time I spent working in with the Veterans and Servicemembers Rights clinic was one of the most valuable experiences I have had at Touro Law. The skills I obtained while working in the Veterans Clinic has prepared me for other internships I have received and helped distinguish myself from others. My clinic experience has fulfilled the promise Touro Law made to not just educate me but to prepare me for practice. Anthony Avitable 2016 3.
