Christian Wooddell

During his academic year abroad in Arusha, Tanzania, Christian interned at the Tanzania Women Lawyers Association. This experience showed him the raw power of the law as a tool for justice. Upon returning to Rochester, New York, Christian interned with the Monroe County Commissioner of Jurors, where he witnessed the structural barriers to actual justice within our legal system. He serves as a Community Fellow with the Chinese-American Planning Council, using Mandarin Chinese to provide screenings and assist clients seeking naturalization, green card renewals, and adjustment of status.
