2024 CLEA Awards for Outstanding Clinical and Externship Students: IU Maurer's Amani Khoury

Each year, the Clinical Legal Education Association invites law schools to nominate students as their Outstanding Clinic Student or Team and Outstanding Externship student. This series includes submissions from law schools celebrating their outstanding students. 

From Indiana University Maurer School of Law:

Outstanding Clinical Student: Amani Khoury

It is our great pleasure at Conservation Law Center to nominate Amani Khoury. Amani has been a stellar colleague and student leader at CLC over the past two years. Her work product consistently demonstrates excellence in legal research, writing and analytical abilities. She received the highest grade in the clinic in her first year with us and we were so impressed with her that we invited her back to be a “junior attorney” with student oversight responsibilities this year. In that role, she has been incredibly helpful to the Clinic’s senior attorneys with ongoing cases and teaching. She has been an outspoken and professional student leader in both small group and large clinic settings. And, she demonstrates genuine interest in helping her fellow students succeed. As junior attorney at CLC, Amani is tasked with helping to oversee student work on multiple projects, including cases active litigation. That requires her to have an in-depth understanding of the facts and law of each case, review and provide feedback on student work, and host office hours at least twice a semester. We are confident that Amani is well on her way to becoming an outstanding attorney and she is, without a doubt, a model for what law students should aim to achieve when participating in a law school clinic.
