I’m very encouraged to be selected as a 2015 American Bar Association John J. Curtin Jr. Justice Fund Legal Fellow. It’s awarded to three law students per year, who spend the summer advocating for homeless &/or indigent clients, and it’s meant to encourage legal careers that further social justice. I applied because I will be at the Roxbury Defenders Unit this summer, & some of the fellowships in the past have been awarded to students interning at public defender offices. You can read a bit about it here.
A few folks helped me get my application ready; Nicole Wolfman (a BU student, the other intern at the Federal Public Defender Office this past winter, and who spent last winter at RDU), Aaron Horth (a BU student, who was selected for the fellowship last summer), Michelle Newman (a NUSL student, who spent this past winter at RDU), and Joshua Raisler Cohn (who will be my supervisor at RDU this summer).
I’ve also been accepted as a AmeriCorpsJD Member, which you can read about here.
In other news, REFUSED WILL BE RELEASING A NEW ALBUM ON JUNE 30, so I think this is going to be a pretty good summer.
