Michael Dueñas, a third-year law student, grew up outside of Los Angeles. He was drawn to UMass Law for its affordability and commitment to public interest law, but as a son of Mexican immigrants, he wondered how he would fit in. What he found was a welcoming, diverse community. And he has been able to help the region's immigrant community through his work in the Immigration Law Clinic.
