Law Clinic’s Assistant Director honored by UofL for outstanding performance
Simone Beach, Assistant Director of the Law Clinic at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law, was honored last week by UofL President James Ramsey at the annual Outstanding Performance Awards Reception.
The award recipients are chosen based on their “hard work, dedication to students and the university, leadership and public service.”
Beach has worked at the Law School for more than 15 years and is a licensed attorney. At the Law Clinic, where the primary work law students handle is to help low-income victims of domestic violence obtain protective orders, she counsels students and clients as they work to achieve the goal of safety for the victim.
Beach is the first face people see when they enter the clinic, which provides a vital service to those unable to afford the services of a private attorney. While each student represents an average of 12 clients, she is involved in every case in some way, meaning her work has impacted an untold number of people who can be more at peace in their daily lives.
