The Community Outreach Branch determines the locations of our legal aid clinics and works directly with our host site and local partners.
Director of Community Outreach
Kathleen Benson is a junior at Saint Mary’s Hall in San Antonio, Texas. She is extremely grateful that Shilpa invited her to join the Legal Legal Project team because with two attorneys as parents, she has been familiar with the justice system her entire life. It was not until she began her volunteer work at the Migrant Resource Center and Sueños Sin Fronteras de Tejas that she was exposed to the gap in that system for those most in need. She looks forward to embarking on a critical journey with LLP as it fights to combat this gap and serve the community that she loves.
Assistant Director of Community Outreach
My name is Lara Weissmann and I am a junior at Saint Mary’s Hall. I am so excited that I was invited to join Legal Legacy project because of how clearly important the goal of this organization is. Growing up with two attorneys as parents, I am familiar with the justice system. I realized how many people need help because I grew up in a town where many of my friend's families needed legal help involving deportation cases and weren’t able to afford it. I look forward to work in LLP serving the extended community of San Antonio in crucial ways.
