“At a time when so much seems uncertain, and the country feels so uneasy, it has been a blessing to be a small part of healing the world in my small corner of it. It would be a great blessing to return next summer.” – Tim Rosenberger, Stanford Law School, EJA Summer Fellow 2020

“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.
