CLEA Outstanding Student Award: Albany's Rebecca LaPoint

CLEA Outstanding Clinical Student or Team Award: Rebecca LaPoint in Albany Law's Justice Center: 

Rebecca represented an asylum-seeker from Afghanistan who fled Taliban rule and could not return due to the United States’ withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021. She was tireless in her thorough research, trauma-informed in her client interviewing and counseling, and excelled in spite of every challenge that the case presented. Her contributions in class were incredibly impactful, her reflections were searching and sincere, and we have no doubt she will be a tremendous addition to the bar.
