For Your Information…

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