A student perspective on antitrust law, student organizations, and clinics at Yale Law School.

You don’t have to be a lawyer, but you have to be an involved person. You have to care enough about things to do something about them. It doesn’t have to be politics. It can be your church, your school, your community center; however, you want to be involved. What you cannot do is ignore things.”


U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor

Class of 1979
