For Your Information…

The following University of Michigan Law School students have received fellowships from Equal Justice America.  Equal Justice America Fellowships are made possible by contributions from University of Michigan Law School alumni.  With continued support from the alumni, we look forward to putting many more University of Michigan law students to work on behalf of the poor. We need your help!
