Students Volunteer for UVA Law Public Service Day

Posted: Updated:

Incoming law students at the University of Virginia were hard at work Sunday before they start hitting the books.

Students went in groups to the Ronald McDonald house, Piedmont Casa, Madison House, and the Virginia Institute of Autism for the law school's "Public Service Day".

One volunteer moved to Charlottesville just two days ago and was glad to get out in the community to help those nonprofit's before heading off to orientation Monday.

Law student Harry Marino said, "Anytime you come to a new place it's kind of, you don't really know anyone, it's great to have an opportunity to come meet people, and sort of see what the new towns all about, and I'm excited to be here."

The students helped clean, pack letters, and wash cars at the Institute for Autism. Employees there said the work the students did in a few hours would have them taken several days on their own.
