Students at the law school undergo intense training in legal methods and writing so that they have the skills to effectively apply their experiential education when they graduate. With skill and resolve, the Kline School of Law and its alumni are chipping away at that peak. Promoted to that post from staff attorney in December, Baez is among a growing number of alumni pursuing public interest careers in Philadelphia with nonprofit organizations, city, state and federal agencies and even big law.

Alumni have made their presence felt both as public-interest fellows and attorneys, said Judith Bernstein-Baker, the executive director of HIAS Pennsylvania. Alumni like Erica Briant, ’14, who got their start with HIAS as pro bono students have continued to make a powerful impression, Bernstein-Baker said. Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia Executive Director Peter Hileman said the organization was able to build and expand its expungement program into seven of the city's poorest neighborhoods, through the passionate commitment of Jaimee Moore, '10, the legal director. Public-interest minded alumni have also adopted entrepreneurial strategies to advance the common good. Karla Cruel and Eddie Kang, both ’13, have teamed up to launch the Legal Empowerment Group, a firm that provides education and community outreach as well as legal assistance. The new enterprise offers clients targeted guidance so they can handle tasks on a pro se basis where possible, Cruel said, though Kang is available to represent them in court when necessary.

Veteran public-interest attorneys voice gratitude for the school’s respected Pro Bono Service Program, which delivers some 14,000 hours of legal service every year. Students working with the Homeless Advocacy Project have been enthusiastic in their efforts to expedite Social Security disability applications on behalf of youths aging out of foster care and juvenile facilities, said staff attorney Laura Kolb.
Professor Montemarano previously served as the school's assistant dean for career and professional development and visiting assistant professor.
Cruel is also going to offer classes in churches and schools to explain and demystify the legal system.
