She is a graduate of the Trial Lawyer’s College (TLC), a post-bar curriculum dedicated to training and educating lawyers and judges who are committed to the jury system, to representing and obtaining justice for the poor, the defenseless and the damned, among others, and to protecting the rights of such people from corporate and government oppression. No attorney employed by a corporation, or the government, may enroll at TLC.
