For Your Information…

The following Brooklyn Law School students have received fellowships from Equal Justice America. These fellowships are made possible by contributions from Brooklyn Law alumni. With continued support from the alumni, we look forward to putting many more Brooklyn Law students to work providing vitally needed legal assistance to the poor. We need your help!
