Attorney, Wagerman/Katzman Law Firm - Civil Litigation Clinic – Spring 2011
eric mogy

"Working in the Civil Litigation Clinic was one of the most rewarding experiences of my law school career. Participating as a student attorney gave me the practical real world experience that you just can not get inside a regular classroom. Whether it was meeting with actual clients, negotiating with opposing counsel, or trying a case in a real court of law, each aspect helped contribute to my readiness as a lawyer once I passed the bar. The clinic also taught me the nuts and bolts of organization, which is key no matter what type of law you practice. I can honestly say that being a student attorney in the Civil Litigation Clinic was instrumental to setting me on the right path as an attorney."

Elder Law Clinic, Spring 2012

"Participating in the Elder Law Clinic was a highlight of my law school experience. Working directly with a client and solving real life legal problems was both challenging and rewarding. It was an excellent opportunity to put book learning into practice. For students wishing to acquire hands-on experience in a supervised setting, I  thoroughly recommend taking a clinic course."

Elder Law Clinic, Fall 2011

"The legal clinics are a very valuable learning tool and greatly enrich the law school experience in many ways.  Two of the most valuable aspects of the clinics are the level of involvement with clients’ cases and the opportunity to directly interact with clients.  In the legal clinics, you get to handle all aspects of the representation.  This begins with the initial interview and does not end until the case is resolved.  This gives you great hands-on experience that was unparalleled in my legal education.  Getting to interact and be responsible for clients’ cases was another of the many great benefits of participating in the legal clinics.  Filling this role while in a controlled clinic setting is something that no other law school learning opportunity can provide. That is the opportunity to try to resolve all issues in a case and if you cannot you know that there is a leader in the field of law at your side to guide you through whatever matters you cannot resolve on your own.  This allows for a deeper learning experience than any law book can provide."

Current and former experiential learning students are encouraged to submit testimonials to Professor Daniel Schaffzin (dschffzn@memphis.edu).
