Laura Edmondson is a second year law student at the University School of Arkansas School of Law. She grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas, where all of my family resides to this day. She received a Bachelor's Degree in English and Film from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas. Following undergrad, she worked briefly in the film industry before beginning law school at the University of Arkansas School of Law. I learned of Legal Aid of Arkansas through the university's pro bono opportunities. Laura states “The work I've done at Legal Aid has been one of the most rewarding opportunities of my law school experience and a chance to see how the law shapes the lives of many."
