Northeastern University School of Law

The following Northeastern University School of Law students have received fellowships from Equal Justice America. These fellowships are made possible by contributions from Northeastern alumni. With continued support from the alumni, we look forward to putting many more Northeastern 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.)

My summer clerkship would not have been possible without financial support through Equal Justice America. Choosing to pursue public interest, in a legal system that encourages and celebrates corporate interests, is incredibly challenging. Securing funding for summer internships is not easy to do. However, Equal Justice America has made this possible for me and so many other law students.

Since I began my internship as an Equal Justice America Legal Services Fellow at Greater Boston Legal Services in the Elder, Health, and Disability Unit, I have really enjoyed the opportunity and privilege to work directly with elder and disabled clients on their cases. I am amazed by their kindness, willingness to organize and provide their documents for time-sensitive deadlines, and their positive outlooks on their cases. My clients and their hope continue to inspire me to become a better advocate.

Again and again, I was surprised and moved by the strength of these people, and by many others. Some surprised me with their relentless optimism in the face of a difficult legal struggle and a society that often appears to be trying to cast them away. Others surprised me with their patriotism and love for a country which had not yet even agreed to allow them to make a home here. Still others moved me with their strength to simply keep trying despite having overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles only to be faced with more.
