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

“Equal Justice America’s fellowship program allowed me to join NWIRP’s Seattle office during the summer of 2016. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have worked with, and learned from, remarkable clients and staff attorneys. I have broadened my understanding of asylum and immigration law, even as I have seen how legal services can transform people’s lives in positive ways. My experience at NWIRP has affirmed my commitment to a career in public interest law.” –Kate Shattuck, University of Washington School of Law, EJA Summer Fellow 2016
