Law Student Receives Prestigious Public Interest Fellowship
April 21, 2011 —
The Peggy Browning Fund has awarded 1L Kathryn Brown a prestigious 10-week fellowship. Brown will spend her summer assisting migrant and indigent workers at Friends of Farmworkers, a statewide legal services program in Philadelphia.
Competition for the program is stiff; the fund received more than 460 applications from law students around the U.S. and will award fewer than 60 fellowships this year. The fellowships go to law students with a demonstrated commitment to public interest labor law who garner practical experience working for social and economic justice.
Prior to attending law school, Brown served as an immigration legal assistant at the Nationalities Service Center, a Philadelphia non-profit that provides social, educational and legal assistance to immigrants and refugees in the Delaware Valley. She earned her M.A. in Latin American Studies with a focus on migration issues from University of California – Berkeley.
