Lila Meadows has been an amazing mentor throughout law school. As my clinic professor, she taught me to have confidence in my skills and how to be a successful attorney in practice, all while maintaining client centered lawyering. Lila taught me so much throughout clinic, and continues to do so as a mentor in my next steps. Her kindness and amazing skills as both a professor and attorney will be dearly remembered.
