“My summer at [East Bay Community Law Center] offered me the opportunity to learn so much. I got the chance to practice working directly with clients, improving my legal research and writing skills, and conducting oral arguments and negotiations. I also got to see what a truly excellent legal services nonprofit looks like. EBCLC is an inspiring place to work, and I was motivated by the supervising attorneys, staff, and my fellow students every day. I absolutely loved being in this fight, and hope to work in housing law in the future. Thanks for helping me do this work this summer, EJA!” – Michaela Ross, Stanford Law School, EJA Summer Fellow 2018

“After an incredible summer at Bet Tzedek Legal Services, I recently began my second year of classes at Stanford Law School. As I reflect on my summer and all I have learned, I am overwhelmed by a feeling of gratitude. My EJA Fellowship and the support of my law school made it possible for me to contribute to a force of good in a world shrouded in inequalities. A force of good so powerful that even while at times understaffed, underfunded, and overworked, many attorneys and other advocates are managing to make a positive difference each and every day.” – Sarah Harris, Stanford Law School, EJA Summer Fellow 2019
