Pre-Law Students Inspired by Clinic Work

May 4, 2014


As Angelica Reyes makes her way to West Dallas, she is nervous. She has never driven to this part of town before, let alone by herself. Rundown homes and boarded-up shops pepper the neighborhood.

She pulls into the parking lot of the Wesley Rankin Community Center and walks inside. The hall is lined with dozens of Dallas residents, desperate for free legal counsel and a bit of good news. With a few confusing minutes, Reyes has checked in with organizers of the West Dallas Legal Clinic and is soon helping clients with intake forms.

“Being thrown in so fast, I was really nervous,” said Reyes, a junior political science major at UT Arlington. “At first, people seem just like numbers. I found that I wanted to spend more time with these people one on one.”

The internship experience has made a lasting impact on Reyes. Instead of business law, the Midlothian resident and Mexican native is considering family law as her main field of study once she graduates from UT Arlington in 2015 and moves on to law school.

That’s part of the design of Associate Professor Elisabeth Cawthon’s Legal Aid Outreach course, or HIST 4391-002. Supported by a grant from the Texas Bar Foundation, students are asked to go beyond the classroom and serve as volunteers for Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas. Course requirements include 20 internship hours serving as intake coordinators at an area legal aid clinics, researching and writing papers about legal representation in U.S. history and participation in a pre-law outreach program for Arlington high schools.

“We expected that the class would offer pre-law students an opportunity to gain experience in various fields of law,” said Cawthon, who also serves as director of the Pre-Law Center. “Legal aid clinics assist clients with needs including bankruptcy assistance, veterans’ affairs, domestic disputes, immigration issues, wills, and landlord-tenant disputes. I was certain students would hone in on legal specializations through their clinic service.

“But I marveled at how often the students asked for extra clinic assignments beyond those that were required in the course. They found clinic service to be challenging but also heartwarming.”



History major and pre-law senior Arif Abrar said he enjoyed the experience. Over the course of the spring semester, he worked in clinics in Dallas, Fort Worth and Arlington. Much of the client issues centered on civil cases or family law, he said, but the opportunity to help others navigate the often-confusing U.S. legal system was rewarding.

“There were a lot of folks there from very diverse backgrounds; the situation was chaotic,” said Abrar, who will graduate this spring. “There were lots of people and sometimes not enough attorneys. But I enjoyed it. It made me feel really good about myself. After this class is over, I’m still going over to volunteer.”

Abrar, a native of Bangladesh, has been accepted to Southern Methodist University and will begin law school there in the fall. He credits his experience and networking at the legal clinics in North Texas as major reasons in his decision to study business law at SMU instead of Baylor University and the University of Houston. Abrar said he intends to work pro bono throughout graduate school and during his career.

“The focus of the [Legal Aid] class is the outreach program,” he said. “Law school is a lot of about reading, but there’s a practical side. And volunteering gave me practical experience. It was very helpful.”

Reyes said before the course she didn’t even know free legal aid clinics existed. Now, she’s excited about future opportunities to help others.

“I liked being able to help,” she said. “I thought maybe being a lawyer, I wouldn’t have that kind of impact on people and actually see it. But I’m glad for the opportunity and plan to volunteer in future.”

Since 1951, Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas has provided free civil legal services to eligible low-income residents in 114 north and west Texas counties. The group also offers educational opportunities and experiences for high school, college and law students, as well as retired members of our community.

POLS’ Lothamer Joins Archer Program in D.C.

April 23, 2014


Political Science graduate student Lucas Lothamer heads to Washington, D.C., this summer for the Archer Center Graduate Program in Public Policy.

Lothamer will join fellow graduate students Tharani Krishnakumar (School of Social Work and School of Urban and Public Affairs) and Claire Asher-Ewan (Social Work) as UT Arlington representatives.

The Archer Center graduate program, which runs May 29 through August 16, provides students from The University of Texas System with professional internships in D.C. thereby enhancing their knowledge of public policy and politics. Lothamer, who graduated with his bachelor’s degree in political science in 2013, said his undergraduate research on environmental policies sparked his interest in working with U.S. senators or in a private think tank on these issues.

“I’ve always been a vocal advocate of being conscientious of our actions and aware of the detrimental side-effects they may have on the environment,” Lothamer said. “My research really provoked my interest in environmental law and I am excited at the opportunity of working with a Senator or an organization that seeks to promote positive change for the environment.”

Lothamer said he hopes the experience will help him gain new insight into federal policies regarding clean air and nuclear energy, as well as environmental law. He hopes to pursue a Ph.D. and teach at the university level after completing his master’s degree in 2015.

Additionally, Lothamer said he plans to work on research for this thesis while he is in D.C. for two-and-a-half months. His research will focus on how Congressional members utilize Facebook to connect with constituents during elections.

The Archer Center is named for retired U.S. Representative Bill Archer. The Graduate Program in Public Policy was established by The University of Texas System as a way to bring graduate students pursuing policy and politics to the nation’s capital to learn about the federal government and public service. Students earn nine in-residence credit hours and complete an internship on Capitol Hill, in an Executive Branch agency or other Washington, D.C., governmental or private sector organization.

Dr. Karl Petruso, Dean of the Honors College and longtime UT Arlington representative to the Archer Center, characterizes these as the best internships in Washington and outstanding opportunities in public service. He notes that Archer internships (which are offered at both the graduate and undergraduate levels) frequently launch UT Arlington students on their careers in government, politics, law, and media.
