“Dade Legal Aid provides the opportunity to effect change in many different areas of law. I want to be an advocate for people and help them defend themselves against the injustices that they face on an everyday basis, which drives my passion for the study of law. Dade Legal Aid provides the opportunity to do so.” ViviannaTijerino 2L, Florida International University College of Law Summer Intern 2022

“I am writing to thank you for all of the opportunities I had during the Summer of 2021 through Duke Engage. I have tremendous respect for your important and inspiring work. Everyone welcome me, but I would like to especially thank Geoffrey Valdez-Alba, Esq., and Jason Sotelo, for going above and beyond. I will never forget this summer! Thank you.”  Brandon Dodds

“I chose to intern at Venture Law Department because I know from personal experience that entrepreneurs face so many legal hurdles before their ideas have even taken off. Legal services are expensive, and I would hate for money to be the reason that someone can’t get the legal help to make their start-up goals a reality. As a result of this internship, I gained the experience I will need to help future clients that are bootstrapping and hustling to make their dreams come true. When I become a licensed attorney, I want to offer pro bono legal services to all those starry-eyed start-ups that don’t know where to go, and this internship brought me one step closer to ny personal goal.”  Veda Lejardi Cruz, Fall 2017 Intern, University of Miami School of Law
