Miami Law Professional Responsibility and Ethics Program

PREP Student Testimonials

Home   >  Center for Ethics and Public Service   >  Professional Responsibility and Ethics Program   >  PREP Student Testimonials

"Visiting FIAC [Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center] was an amazing experience. It was great to hear from the attorneys about their personal experiences with their clients in the day-to-day operations of the center. I will absolutely take what I learned with me to whatever job I have upon graduation." - Kelly Rains, class of 2012

"Last year I had a great experience presenting to the Miami [State Farm law firm] office, but to be able to return as a PREP Fellow this year and expand the presentation into a national webinar was really rewarding. I think it demonstrates how well received PREP students are in the professional community." - Jill Martignetti, class of 2012

"The rules of professional responsibility surrounding advertisement and social media are complex in Florida. It was extremely satisfying to see that all of our hard work and research had an impact on the Palm Beach legal community." - Justin Ortiz, class of 2013

"I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the attorneys [at Legal Services of Greater Miami.] The great thing about the program is that it allows students to not only become knowledgeable about current ethical issues that are plaguing the community, but it also gives us an opportunity to interact with practicing attorneys and become involved in Miami's legal community. This sort of experience is invaluable to law students." - Courtney Daniels, class of 2013

"Interacting with the lawyers and staff at Catholic Charities revealed how the realities of working in a busy immigration law firm can complicate the ethical obligations that attorneys owe to their clients," - Amanda Hirst, J.D.'11

"Creating CLE ethics trainings and presenting at bar associations across South Florida has provided me with a learning experience that is not found in most law school classes. PREP facilitates dialogue across a wide spectrum of the profession—law school students, professors, lawyers, judges, and legal assistants. Every student should have the opportunity to participate in PREP or a course like it and schools that do not offer a similar program should consider creating one." - Danielle Singer, J.D. ’14
