May 30, 2011

Nine Fordham Law School students were selected as recipients of the Equal Justice Works Summer Corps Program. Inessa Abayev, Lauren Cooperman, Manuel Gomes, Michael Heinemann, Megan Keenan, James Lin, Diana Marin, David Mou, and Francisco Pardo were chosen through a very competitive selection process and will be working with organizations such as the ACLU Racial Justice Project Center for Appellate Litigation, the Door, Legal Aid Society, Washington Lawyers' Committee on Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, and Farmworkers Legal Services.

The 2011 Summer Corps members are first- and second-year law students from 132 law schools. They will each serve at least 300 hours in public interest projects, providing critically needed legal assistance to low-income and underserved communities throughout the United States. Summer Corps members will also gain first-hand experience and legal skills in areas such as client intake, individual representation, research and writing.
