Elizabeth Rocha Zuñiga, ’24, is interested in public interest work and immigration law. She was drawn to McGeorge School of Law because of its Immigration Law Clinic and the passion that McGeorge has for community building. She chose to attend law school because she is from an underserved community and recognized at a young age how important a resource can be. Zuñiga wants to make a difference and be a leader in her community.
Last summer, Zuñiga served as a 2022 Dan Bradley Fellow and worked for the California Rural Legal Assistance, Inc., one of the largest nonprofits in California. This summer, she will be working through California Central Legal Services (CCLS). CCLS is a private nonprofit public interest law firm established for the purpose of providing free legal assistance to low-income individuals, families, organizations, and communities. Recently, Zuñiga started volunteering at McGeorge’s Immigration Law Clinic as well.
