Outstanding Clinic Student: Marianna Sheedy

Marianna Sheedy, Class of 2024, was an amazing asset to the Tenants’ Rights Unit at New York Legal Assistance Group during her externship. At NYLAG, Marianna helped to draft HP Actions on behalf of tenants seeking repairs to their apartments, drafted motions, researched legal issues, and assisted attorneys in preparing for trials. She put a lot of effort into her research and writing which is a vital part of being an excellent attorney. Marianna was hardworking, consistently sought feedback, and always had her assignments in on time. She proved to be a dedicated advocate who will be a wonderful attorney. Marianna also excelled during the seminar portion of her externship, offering insightful and sincere reflections that were significant and contributed to fostering vibrant classroom discussion. Furthermore, Marianna's written assignments were exceptionally well-executed, and her time sheets consistently indicated her ability to handle substantive legal tasks throughout her placement. Marianna's insights and contributions were beneficial to other students in the class. She was truly an exceptional student!
