“Not only do we serve people who may otherwise not have access to legal representation, but it teaches students that pro bono work is something they can and should do when they leave law school.”

Christine Cimini, Sturm College of Law

Associate Professor Christine Cimini had some “enticing” job offers from highly ranked law schools but chose to stay at DU’s Sturm College of Law because of its exceptional clinical program and the endowed chair she was offered.

As the Ronald V. Yegge Clinical Director and Associate Professor of Law, Cimini oversees the college’s clinical programs. These enable law students to take their classroom education into the courtroom and to put their skills to use for the greater good. It’s an experience Cimini values tremendously.

“When a student is 100 percent responsible for a mom who might lose her house, there is no stronger way to instill in students that they have something important to offer their community,” she says. “Not only do we serve people who may otherwise not have access to legal representation, but it teaches students that pro bono work is something they can and should do when they leave law school.”
