Dozens of St. Mary’s University law students skipped the trip to the beach and, instead, spent their spring break working on public interest legal issues and community service projects in cities across Texas and in Louisiana — racking up a total of 2,480 public service hours.
Students traveled to New Orleans, Dallas, Houston, Austin and the McAllen area, while some contributed their time here in San Antonio.
One group traveled to the Rio Grande Valley region and assisted nearly 40 people with finalizing their wills. Another student reflected on her time working with Advocates for Community Transformation in Dallas.
