Mia Lewis and Carmilla Rose, both 3L students practicing with the Family Law Section of the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice, were recently commended by 24th Judicial District Court Judge Cornelius E. Regan for their work on a recent case. The students, supervised by clinical professors Cheryl Prestenback Buchert and Ramona Fernandez, were assigned to represent the interests of a minor. Judge Regan complimented the students by saying they, "... were always prepared to advocate for the best interest of their client. I was highly impressed by the way the Student Practicioners presented themselves when questioning witnesses and arguing motions in open Court."
