The following Brooklyn Law School students have received fellowships from Equal Justice America. These fellowships are made possible by contributions from Brooklyn Law School alumni. With continued support from the alumni, we look forward to putting many more Brooklyn Law students and graduates to work providing vitally needed legal assistance to the poor.
(Equal Justice America is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation unaffiliated with any law school.)

Mario Fitzgerald worked at the Sylvia Rivera Law Project in New York City.
Raine Henry worked at Sanctuary for Families in New York City.
Elizabeth Ildefonso worked at Brooklyn Legal Services.
Rachel Russell worked at Lambda Legal in New York City.
I hope that Equal Justice America is able to continue its vital mission of providing public interest-minded law students with the funding they often lack – both for the law students who wish to gain experience providing legal services, and for the underrepresented communities that your fellowships so nobly serve.
