Tiffany Caudill and Kaley Thompson are working this summer in public service programs as Rural Summer Legal Corps Fellows.
• Tiffany is working with Legal Aid of Greater Cincinnati to help the Kinship Care Team provide legal services to families in which grandparents or others are caring for children affected by parental substance abuse or incarceration.
• Kaley is working with Kentucky Legal Aid to help develop a telephonic client intake system to increase the availability of pro bono services for clients in its rural service area.
Here is how their Chase experiences prepared them for it and what it means to them:
• Tiffany: “Chase has helped prepare me for this opportunity through the career counseling services and the professors who apply real-world issues to class materials. This opportunity will benefit me during my time at Chase by giving me real experiences in the legal field I am interested in pursuing after graduation.”
• Kaley: “Chase has prepared me for this fellowship by teaching me how to communicate effectively with my professors and my peers so that I can express my ideas. I have learned great research and writing skills to use in assisting attorneys in a few different areas of the law. I believe this fellowship will benefit me in my classes by allowing me to decide on what area of the law I wish to focus on in the future.”
