Luz Herrera was hired by Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 2008, in part, because she's great at starting things.
She was the first member of her family to go to college (and, subsequently, law school).
She started her own law practice.
And she co-founded Community Lawyers Inc., a Los Angeles-based nonprofit that offers affordable legal services to low- and moderate-income individuals.
So the administrators at TJSL specifically brought on Herrera to start a transactional clinic at the school, and she hasn't disappointed.
