Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law

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

We need your help!

Megan Shuster

““The fellowship allowed me to work full time for this amazing non-profit and learn about an area of law that I most likely would not have been able to had it not been for the fellowship. I was able to fully focus on this internship which helped me to develop a desire to continue helping those in need, whether it is through a non-profit or pro bono work. Without this fellowship, I would not have been able to gain skills, nor would have I been able to see a client’s case from start to finish and turn her life around. It allowed me to open my eyes to a very big problem in this country that most people don’t know is happening. This fellowship allowed me to engage in meaningful work that I don’t think I would have been able to do without it.” -Megan Shuster, Catholic University Columbus School of Law, EJA Summer Fellow 2016
