Getting It Done for Legal Aid: Ashleigh Leitch Featured in Attorney at Law Magazine
Attorney at Law’s latest issue highlights Ashleigh Leitch and her work with Legal Aid throughout her legal career.
“Working at Legal Aid in my hometown helped me to recognize my privilege. In my personal life, I never saw the issues that Legal Aid clients were working through. Later, working with [Legal Aid’s Minnesota Disability Law Center], I did a deep dive into my own preconceived notions about disability and became aware of implicit bias. I learned so much about access and ability that is helpful now in my work with employment law.”
In 2018, Ashleigh joined The Fund for Legal Aid’s Associates’ Campaign as co-chair. This year, she and her co-chairs are coordinating a city-wide effort to raise the ambitious fundraising goal of over $100,000.
