The Health Law Partnership (HeLP) Legal Services Clinic welcomes Christina Scott (J.D. ’18) to Georgia State Law. Scott, who is a HeLP clinic alum, joins the clinic after spending several years as an Atlanta Legal Aid Society staff attorney for HeLP, where she worked closely with clients.
Scott spent 20 years teaching writing and research at the undergraduate level before attending law school. Her goal was to use her legal degree to continue in a research role. It wasn’t until she enrolled in the HeLP clinic as a law student that she knew working in that type of capacity was her calling.
First hired as a supervising attorney for the clinic in January, when an opportunity opened to join the faculty as an assistant clinical professor, Scott said she had to jump on it.
“The HeLP clinic is a premier clinic. It’s well known across not just the state, but the country and I want to make sure that continues and I do my part,” said Scott. “I may not have built the clinic, but I’m really invested in making sure it continues to have this great reputation and serve so many clients.”
