Rising 3L Named Equal Justice Standout
July 15, 2009 — Tracy Tripp, a third-year student at the Earle Mack School of Law, was named a Summer Corps Standout by Equal Justice Works, a Washington, D.C.-based organization that promotes public-interest work by law students and recent graduates.
Tripp is one of 10 standouts identified among 355 law students participating in Equal Justice’s Summer Corps program, which supports students who provide legal assistance to low-income and underserved communities.
Equal Justice chose Tripp based on her work with Community Legal Services of Philadelphia.
“’Administrative error,’ is a dry term for mistakes that cause people to go hungry, forgo medical help, and sleep in the rain,” Tripp says. “Working at CLS, where they spend all day fixing just those sorts of errors and more, has been a privilege.”
A New Jersey native, longtime Philadelphia resident, and University of Pennsylvania graduate, Tripp is editor-in-chief of the Drexel Law Review.
