Jonathan Reyes-Colon, a student at the University at Buffalo School of Law, is already in Puerto Rico helping prepare for the arrival of his classmates who will be providing legal services under the auspices of a practicing attorney. Here are his reflections on the legal clinic and his experience since Hurricane Maria:

“Leaving Puerto Rico to study law in Buffalo meant beginning a new, entirely different life away from home. So far, that has meant being part of two entirely different worlds, separated by many miles, with a different culture, a different way of thinking and of doing things. The two worlds didn’t really overlap in any significant way. Whenever I visit my parents, I would tell them about my experience in Buffalo so far, and to some extent, my friends in law school know about my life back home. However, there was never truly an occasion or any reason where the two worlds came together.
