The Youth Law Center is pleased to announce that Virginia Corrigan, a Harvard Law School graduate, has received an Equal Justice Works fellowship to work at the Youth Law Center on juvenile justice issues for two years. We thank Baker & McKenzie and the Intel Corporation for their generous support of her fellowship.
Launched in 1992, the Equal Justice Works Fellowship Program is the largest postgraduate legal fellowship program in the country, with nearly 100 fellows currently working on two-year projects they designed with nonprofit organizations, targeting the most crucial needs of the communities they serve. The 57 fellowships that were granted this year are privately funded by the generous support of law firms, corporations, foundations, and individual donors. Seventeen of these fellowships, or nearly one third of the class, are being sponsored by funding partnerships between law firms and their corporate clients.
