During her first year in law school, Daissy Dominguez, now president of John Marshall's Latino Law Students Association (LLSA), saw some of her classmates at John Marshall whom she describes as "smart, hardworking individuals" being dismissed from the law school.
"I knew they were capable of doing well in law school, and they were studying every day but just needed more assistance," Dominguez said. She decided she would be the catalyst for change, and she led the drive for an Academic Enhancement Program (AEP) at John Marshall.
