The Civil-Criminal Litigation Clinic gave me the opportunity to draft briefs and subpoenas, interview witnesses, and participate in court conferences. As a result, on my first day at Simpson Thacher, I had the confidence and experience to take on any assignment. Almost 10 years later, I still rely on the fundamental skills I learned in the clinic.
