i am a 1L, but i studied abroad in college in Egypt, and worked with a legal aid project.
Language was definitely problem, BUT the office had a staff of translators that I could work with.
it is a cliche, but the experience changed my life.
i could not have done it without being a student.
for example, i did not have to pay international fees, and the study abroad staff guided me at every step.
if your school has a study program, it definitely worth investigating.
if your school doesn't, there are always other options.
this is something you could discuss with a professor.
