Notre Dame Law School

The following Notre Dame Law students received fellowships from Equal Justice America beginning in 2016. These fellowships are made possible by contributions from Notre Dame law alumni. We look forward to putting many Notre Dame law students to work providing vitally needed legal assistance to the poor. We need your help!

(Equal Justice America is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation unaffiliated with any law school.)

The opportunity to work directly with so many clients this summer and to hear their stories has only reaffirmed my commitment to pursuing nonprofit immigration work. I am excited to take the practical knowledge I have gained about immigration law, along with the insights I’ve gained about trauma-informed representation of vulnerable clients, into my future career as a public interest attorney.

EJA Summer Fellow, 2023
  • Summer 2022
    • Allison Morcus worked at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund in Chicago.

    • Keith Ongeri worked at Bet Tzedek in Los Angeles.

Most of Pisgah’s clients walk in the door with many needs, only some of which have legal remedies. Empathy is essential. A referral to other organizations is often the answer. Advice as one human being to another can make a world of difference. I have been inspired to continue pursuing a career in defense of consumers and homeowners and against those who wield power irresponsibly. Thank you for your support this summer and contributing to a just end for each of these stories.

Besides exposing me to new problems and giving me new work experience, the people I worked with at Bay Area were exceptionally friendly and my experience wonderful. None of this would have been possible without EJA’s gracious fellowship. Thank you for making this opportunity possible.
