Pisgah Legal Services welcomes one college student and six law clerks who will be working with us this summer.

The summer law clerks are (L-R): Daniel Sullivan, Appalachian School of Law; Perrin Lowrey, Cornell Law School; Anna Huntley, North Carolina Central University School of Law; Matthew Belitsos, Emory University School of Law; Anastasia Urian, University of North Carolina School of Law; and Coburn Burroughs, Loyola University New Orleans College of Law.

These law school students are participating in summer internships that offer valuable hands-on learning opportunities and provide assistance for our attorneys and staff, allowing Pisgah Legal to serve more clients than with staff alone.

The law students work on legal issues that range from unfair housing practices to domestic violence and securing benefits for people with serious disabilities. Some will have the opportunity to appear before area judges to argue their cases.

We hope this experience will inform and enhance these students’ knowledge of the law and give them greater appreciation of those who are in need of legal assistance but cannot afford it.
