Cardozo School of Law

The following Cardozo School of Law students have received fellowships from Equal Justice America. These fellowships are made possible by contributions from Cardozo alumni. With continued support from the alumni, we look forward to putting many more Cardozo law students and graduates to work providing vitally needed legal assistance to the poor.

We need your help!

Steven Kestel

“My experience at Brooklyn Legal Services Corp A was phenomenal. I gained valuable experience in the legal field. My legal research and writing skills improved by a wide margin. Getting assignments every week, with specific legal questions posed towards our cases, forced me to critically research all the relevant statues and cases and apply them towards our case. Working with a group of interns on these assignments also helped me understand the value of teamwork. Getting things done was more interesting and efficient with a group of highly intelligent and driven team members.” – Steven Kestel, Cardozo School of Law, EJA Summer Fellow 2016
