Lilly Lentz is a second-year law student at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. Lilly’s primary focus is on constitutional law, executed through her participation in an academic program in which she is completing specialized curricula that will allow her to earn a certificate in Constitutional Rights and Remedies alongside her Juris Doctorate degree upon graduation.
Lilly completed her first year of law school at the Charlotte School of Law in North Carolina on a full-ride merit scholarship and finished top-ten in her class.
Lilly has spent much of her time in law school committed to serving low-income persons and members of vulnerable populations. She spent the summer after her first year of law school volunteering in Colorado Springs for eight weeks at Colorado Legal Services. She donated over 300 not-for-credit, nonpaid hours. In that time she acquired experience with family law, tenant defense in landlord tenant disputes, bankruptcy law, poverty law, and wills and estates law. She currently volunteers at the Colorado Legal Services office located in Denver with the Coordinated Statewide Intake unit.
Lilly graduated with honors from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs at age 21, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Prior to starting law school the subsequent fall, Lilly volunteered at the El Paso County Courthouse in the Information Department and the Records Management Department. She simultaneously completed an online writing internship with Thomas J. Henry Injury Attorneys, in which she produced legal content for publishing online and in print for the firm that contained complex legal and medical information and supplemental statistical research.
Lilly is currently enrolled in two upper-division writing courses in which she plans to exercise her varying interests and write on the relationship between the heroine epidemic in the United States and mass incarceration, as well as 10th Amendment state sovereignty protections in relation to marijuana laws.
If her face is not buried in the Constitution, you can find Lilly exploring the Rockies with her Alaskan Husky, pretending she is Picasso playing around with oil paint, or studying metaphysics through the practice of yoga.
