USD Law School Student Selected for Rural Summer Legal Corps
Otterpohl was one of 30 law students selected nationwide. Over the summer, she will serve clients through Iowa Legal Aid, earning a $5,000 stipend to provide legal assistance to low-income and elderly Iowans.
After a kickoff event in Washington D.C., Otterpohl received intensive training in rural practice with Equal Justice Works and the Legal Services Corporation in Martinsburg, West Virginia before returning to Iowa.
The Rural Summer Legal Corps program connects public interest law students with civil legal aid organizations to address pressing legal issues facing rural communities.
