"Professor Mitchell gives us the autonomy we need to manage our cases as we see fit, yet is always available to offer guidance and direction whenever we need it. I have been given the rare privilege of representing clients who are facing extremely substantial charges. I feel this experience is preparing me well for my future as a Public Defender."
